Enjoy beautiful coastal scenery at Caswell Bay. Surf, canoe, or just paddle in the rock pools. Explore caves, follow one of the trails, and watch the waves crashing against the cliffs. The beach has restrooms and shops selling snacks and beach toys. Arrive by bus or car. There is a parking lot, but in the summer months arrive early to secure a space.

  • Car park is £££ even for ♿ unless out out of season. Beach sandy. Limited beachcombing but great for oyster shells. Beware incoming tide! It is v fast here. If you're NOT tide savy, get savy before you turn your back on the sea!
  • Lovely beach. Only ever been in October or February but never busy. Nice rock pools for kids. Caves to explore. Limited parking so expect queues in summer.
  • Beautiful beach with fantastic views at sunset. The shops could do with updating though. They look very tatty!
  • Beautiful beach. What more do you need.
  • Great Access to push chair via ramp. Rock pools and nice cafe. Parking at nearby Council Carpark @ £1.50 for an hour - longer if you want
