Swansea Bay Beach



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.

Beach Water Quality

Water samples are taken at regular intervals during the bathing season and at the end of the season the water quality is classified as:
  - Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
  - Good: generally good water quality
  - Sufficient: meets minimum standards
  - Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
