Caswell Bay, Swansea

4.7
#2 of 29 in Parks in Swansea
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. Beware, the parking lot has a reputation for cars being broken into or stolen. Put Caswell Bay and other Swansea attractions into our Swansea planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Stunning beach on the edge of the gower. Huge when the tide goes out, but a bit of a squeeze when it comes back in! Start of an excellent walk along the cliffs to Pwll Du and Three Cliffs Bay.
  • This is a beautiful beach in the sun and great for surfing when the sea is rough and weather not so good. Toilets, showers and parking (pay meter). Dogs are not allowed during the usual "summer" times although I don't know why as it is completely tidal. Shame they don't have one side for dog users.
  • Lovely sandy beach. Perfect for swimming or playing on the sand. Good facilities with a car park and food shops.
  • Caswell is a lovely clean beach with toilets, cafe, shops selling everything you need at the beach. The children love playing in the little fresh spring stream which runs onto the beach. Plenty of rock pools. Car park and Caswell woods behind cark park is also a lovely place to play and see nature at its best. Good waves, it's a fun place to be.
  • Beautiful beach surrounded by cliffs, there is car park, but I would suggest public transport when the weather is nice, is very busy.
