Having visited last year and enjoyed the RNLI station we were looking forward to our return trip again this year.

Sadly not - Pier Closed - No RNLI - we then strolled down to the small shop on the entrance to the car park - shop closed despite a sign saying open mid morning to mid afternoon.

We feel a visit to these shops a good way of donating sadly not on this occasion.

Walked the dog down to the pier. Worth popping in to Lifeboat Station and shop and looking at the lighthouse from a distance. Cafe and amusement arcade available plus a small sandy beach. Looks like the pier will need a lot of TLC to bring up to standard before hopefully reopening. Pay and display car park available. Worth a visit if passing.

The Pier is very pretty and has some great views. It was very relaxing. My grandson really enjoyed the games arcade.

As first time visitors we were excited to cross over and climb the mountains which we thought was safe and part of the mumbles. However what we didn't realise is that it's actually an island once the tide comes in from both direction. while we were busy climbing this hill and taking photos the tide started to come in very quickly and before we knew it the water was knee deep. There needs to be a sign there, locals informed us that the tide normally comes in after 5pm. Please be careful esp if you have young children, apparently if you do get stuck on the island it can take 12hrs for the tide to go down and for a boat to cross over to be able to reach anyone.
