Bracelet Bay is a small bay on the south of the Gower Peninsula. It is the first bay one comes to after leaving Swansea Bay and rounding Mumbles Head.

Surrounded by limestone cliffs the bay is pebbly, with some sand. It is excellent for a picnic, and affords good views of Mumbles light-house. One should bathe with caution. Above the beach is a carpark, with restaurants and a bar; while to the west the bay is separated from Limeslade Bay by Tutt Hill, which carries a coastguard look-out station.

The name 'Bracelet' is thought to be a corruption of 'Broad Slade'.
