Mewslade Bay on Gower is a reasonably exposed beach break that has pretty consitent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the north northwest with some shelter here from west winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Sometimes crowded. Take care to avoid the rocks.
