Port Eynon Beach (Swansea Bay and The Gower)

Port Eynon beach is a mile long sand and pebble beach backed by sand dunes on the south-west corner of the Gower peninsula. The sand dunes have boardwalks to help exploring and at low tide you can see the remains of ancient peat beds, the old harbour wall and at the far end of the bay an 18th Century ruin of the old Salt House can be seen.

Very popular with all watersports.

The beach is backed by the village of Port Eynon that has a car park.

Port Eynon Beach is a Blue Flag Beach and has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
