  • Just had the pleasure of spending a sunny bank holiday on the Gower Peninsula. Caswell beach has been a firm favourite for the past 7 years. Car park needs proper managing however to avoid frustration of driving round and getting stuck when already full. Recommend get there early to beat the crowds. Otherwise a lovely place to explore and enjoy the sun and sea with the children.
  • Great, even when it is a busy bank holiday weekend. There is a huge tide span, something like 150m in the summer. 5 stars
  • It's a lovely beach set down in the Gower Swansea and is very popular in summer so it's best to get down there early to avoid having to park quite away from it. Or if you haven't got a car there's a bus service that runs that runs hourly from the main bus station in the city which is nice ride along Swansea's sea front. Once at the beach if your hungry there's a few stalls that are open but only from the start of the may until the end of the summer. There's also a cafe which is open nearly all year round. The beach is also next to bishops woods which can be accessed by walking up the car park which is free in the out of Season months.
  • Great beach with plenty of parking, toilet facilities and a cafe for food, drinks and ice creams. It's our favourite beach in the area.
  • Beautiful clean beach, with walking path's on both side's to Langland Bay or Pwlldu Bay, amazing scenery's to enjoy and adore. Ideal day out for any family, there are food shops, toilet facilities, car park and a hourly bus service from swansea station and back. Very popular in the summer, highly recommend.
