Fall Bay on Gower is a fairly exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the north northwest with some shelter here from west winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Sometimes crowded. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
