Council-run beach car parks at Bracelet Bay, Langland Bay and Caswell were closed over the weekend at the request of South Wales Police.
The move came as dozens of motorists ignored Welsh Government stay at home rules and flocked to the seaside in their cars.
Police reported ‘high volumes’ of vehicles at popular Gower beaches. A situation which is reported to have improved following the closure of the car parks by the Council.
Welsh Government Tier 4 restrictions are still in place across Wales, despite falling infection rates. The rules, which are law in Wales, prevent people from driving for exercise. People are instead advised to start and finish their exercise from home.
On a Facebook post over the weekend, Swansea Council said: “We’re closing beach car parks today at Bracelet Bay, Langland Bay and Caswell at the request of South Wales Police. So please don’t travel.
“We know it’s great weather out there but Welsh Government rules mean we should not drive to any location for daily exercise. Please do the right thing to keep us all safe.”
