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.
