Good Beach

Always thought it a good beach for a walk and always got Swansea or the Mumbles so lots of places to have a sit down when you are tired. Lovely on a sunny day and not too busy.

I have lived here all my life and to be honest I rarely go there because there are much better things to see from Mumbles onwards around the Gower. It is fine for a walk with the dog and the sand in some places is clean but you cannot really swim in it. Much has been dredged from the beach... More

Beautiful beach and beach front. Quiet, and unspoilt, although this was February so not the height of season, but with the size of the beach I would not see it getting over crowded

Sipping tea and watching the beach on a rainy morning is an unforgettable experience. These shores have many tales to tell.

Beautiful, well maintained beach at a shallow sea with miles of sand to seaward and a comfortable walking/cycle paths elevated to landward. Walks are fantastic and beach ideal for children and families. Sunbathing and swimming in the summer, walking for the other seasons.

We walk the beach quite often as we live near. Mumbles is in plain view and the further coast of Industrial Port Talbot far enough away to blur into the distance. It's a nice walk, a sweeping bay , but a bit less in comparison with the many of Gowers beaches. Dog walkers welcome at certain times and parts available... More

A lovely long stretch of golden sand, well kept and a delight to walk on even when the tide is in. Bracing when the weather is not so good!!
