This campsite not one for kids, grandparents or excitable dogs. In spring, the narrow valley on whose floor the site rests becomes a grassy pocket of lambs. It is mainly used as a stopping-off point for intrepid hikers and there is no shower and no hot water, and in 23 years the only thing that has been altered is the color of the toilet door. This is about as basic a camping experience you can have in a designated area for camping and the prices agree. At £3 per adult per night, Singapore Travel the rates are some of the lowest in the country.

Number one view from a campsite in the World in 2006

Three Cliffs Bay is voted as the “Number one view from a campsite in the World” in 2006 by The Independent.

Three Cliffs Bay is located at the south coast of the Gower peninsula in the City and County of Swansea, Wales.

One of the major appeals of the park is the spectacular position with the panoramic views of Three Cliffs Bay. It is situated overlooking Three Cliffs Bay with a public footpath leading down to the beach. The public footpath will take about 10 minutes descending to enjoy the beautiful golden sands. There are also some 52 acres of cliff-land which is ideal for exercising dogs.

Beyond Three Cliffs Bay, you have Tor Bay and Crawley Woods, also, Oxwich Bay whose sandy beach is always popular with young families. Here too there is water Ski-ing, sailing and wind-surfing, and for the nature enthusiast a 540 acre National Nature Reserve.
