Caswell Bay, Swansea

4.7
#2 of 25 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.
