We’ve recently had a few days in Mumbles staying at the excellent Patrick’s With Rooms hotel. Mumbles is a great place to visit – it’s right on the seafront with fantastic views right round Swansea Bay. You can promenade around the Bay for several miles if you wish.
Mumbles Village is great for just spending a few hours – it has lots of little shops, quite a few pubs and great cafés and restaurants. There’s a good children’s playground and crazy golf (just opposite Patrick’s) and the kids will love the beach at Bracelet Bay and rock-pools when the tide is out. Note: when the tide is in there’s no beach at all and be warned – the tide comes in quickly here. Check the tides here before you visit.
The Cardiff Bay Wetlands Reserve is an area of piece and quiet right in the middle of Cardiff Bay. It was formed from the salt marshes and mud flats on the edge of the Bay in front of Windsor Esplanade after the bay was permanently flooded.
