The site comprises three broad estuaries that drain into the Bay (the Taf, Tywi and Gwendraeth) in addition to the Bay itself and part of the coast. A wide range of coastal habitats are represented. The IBA is important for wintering and passage wildfowl and waders, and for breeding wildfowl and waterbirds.
