Season: autumn

The distinctive triple-pointed crag at the eastern end of the beach, with its natural arch, gives the bay its name.  It’s a popular spot for rock climbers.  I recommend a scenic approach to the beach via Pennards Cliffs, although you can walk a mile from Parkmill village to get here too.  There’s a campsite and touring park that overlooks the beach, with plenty of facilities available.

    Three Cliffs Bay has everything a Welsh beach can offer – the valley, the winding river and ruined castle as you walk down to it, the sweep of the coastline, the expanse of ocean, the backdrop of hills.  It’s a truly magical place.

    The iconic 3 cliffs have made headlines and canvas’ all over the world, and it’s not hard to see why! A visit to this glorious beach is well worth the scenic walk. Being dog-friendly all year this is a favourite spot for locals and visitors whatever the weather. Go for a family/group picnic, a surf, a photo shoot or a relaxing day – Three Cliffs Bay will not disappoint.
