Limeslade Bay is a small cove just to the west of Bracelet Bay in the south east corner of the Gower Peninsula, Wales. It is a mainly rocky beach with little sand.
Of note is an iron mine at the head of the bay, near the roadside. This is believed to have been worked from Roman times. It is now closed and sealed off. The beach itself has a varied and very different geology than the neighbouring Bracelet Bay.
