A nice beach which can alter from stoney to sand according to the weather. Parking puts you right up to the sand edge. Snacks available and food from simple to simply expensive in a new eating experience. You can walk all the way to Three Cliffs bay and beyond from here.

Beautiful sandy beach with fantastic views and reasonably good public facilities. Great for for families and kids. The nearby hotel does good food but is pricey. The beach cafe is good. Paid parking!

Great walk along the beach on a sunny afternoon. Very sandy and would be lovely on a summer day.

Nice walk, would definitely recommend.

Swansea beaches are great . Terrific sandy beaches and great for families. Would recommend to anyone but get there early in summer as traffic can be bad.

Loverly sandy beach, good swimming in the sea for children. Close to Oxwich Bay Hotel for teas cake etc. Parking opposite to beach so a short walk to sand.
