Three Cliffs Bay on Gower is a reasonably exposed river break that has quite consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the north with some shelter here from west northwest winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. The river breaks offer lefts and rights. Best around high tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Watch out for dangerous rips.
