Pobbles Beach on Gower is a quite exposed beach and point break that only works once in a while with no particular seasonal pattern. The best wind direction is from the north with some shelter here from northwest winds. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the optimum swell angle is from the southwest. and there is a left hand point break as well. Best around low tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
