Broughton Bay is situated at the north-west tip of the peninsula. It is a broad bay backed by sand dunes, with access to Whitford Sands (Gower's most northerly beach), at low water. Swimming is not recommended at any state of tide. The bay remains fairly quiet in summer although there are two caravan parks at either end of the bay.
WARNING: There is no Lifeguard patrol on this beach, do not swim as there are strong undertows from the estuary.
