  • A very convenient marina that is part of the port of Swansea. For yachtsmen and others this can be classified as a port of refuge, accessible via the sea lock at all states of the tide except perhaps for one hour at the lowest spring tides. The marina itself is almost in the city centre so has access to almost any facility, nautical or otherwise you may want. Diesel fuel is available near the marina lock whilst petrol can be obtained from nearby fuel stations. Supermarkets are nearby and there are many restaurants within a short walk. Security is adequate and shower and toilet facilities clean and tidy.
  • Nice walk around the marina. Lots of new accommodation taking advantage of the views. A few pubs, restaurants and arcades available too. Close to the sandy beach.
  • Go here for monthly Food & Craft Markets. Held on a certain Sunday of each month, and then from 10am to 3pm, there's always a fantastic range of food, drink and crafts mostly made in and around Swansea&Gower, although some stallholders' come from further afield.
  • Lovely place for a stroll and dog walking. Lots if boats there. Some quite old some new.
  • Brilliant place to drink and dine or just stroll around looking at the boats.
