- Swansea Castle is a ruined 13th century castle situated in central Swansea in South Wales. An ancient monument now surrounded by modern buildings and roads, it may be hard to picture how the castle originally looked. This was first a motte and bailey settlement from the early 12th century that was added to over the following century. The tower from the castle that still remains today was probably built in the late 13th century. Visitors can view the exterior of the castle only.
- The four miles of Swansea Bay stretches from Swansea Marina at the mouth of the River Tawe to Mumbles Head in the west. The beach faces south east towards the Bristol Channel and the best sandy spots are towards the Swansea end of the bay. A promenade runs along the edge of the bay and in the middle is Blackpill, with a cafe and paddling pools. The bay is ideal for watersports of all kind.
- Jersey Marine beach stretches from the River Neath estuary to Swansea Docks and the beach is backed by sand dunes at Crymlyn Burrows to the north. It is a very quiet beach compared to its neighbours, partly due to it’s difficult access. The tide can go out over a mile which means mud can be ahazard and by the river estuary you can get some strong currents.
