About Us

TheBAY Magazine is a free, monthly, lifestyle magazine for readers in Swansea and Gower. Our editorial policy is to inform, educate and entertain our local community of readers – in addition we have an effective editorial to advertising ratio.

We aim for national levels of excellence in our editorial content and Swansea is proud of the high quality of The Bay’s articles and features – all commissioned and written by experts in their fields – not by journalists. A particularly strong design team ensures that each issue of The Bay is a triumph of originality and visual beauty.
