Gowers beauty at its finest.

Im yet to experience the rest of the beaches in the area. However this deserves a solid 5 stars. Utterly beautiful shots can be had for any level of photographer.

Traditional family beach with a couple of cafés and shop selling beach goods. Big range between low and high tide so at high tide there's not a lot of beach left. Caves and rock pools at low tide though. Parking can be a problem when the weather is good in summer, although there are 2 car parks. Get there early,... More

Great place to take the children. Take a picnic and enjoy the sand sea and sandcastle building. Car park can get full quite early on.

This is an awesome beach in Swansea. The coastline is clean. You can safely enter the water and surf here. Or you would want to chill out on a beach lounger over a glass of wine.

Beautiful huge beach, but a little busy around the cafes which were a little disappointing. Good toilet facilities, and I suppose because it's such a huge beach, you can get away from the busy bit by the entrance. It just seemed a little bit more down market for food & drink than we had experienced in the rest of the... More

A beautiful beach with rugged cliffs and rocks. A great walk along the cliff top to Langland Beach. An excellent little restaurant with great views over the beach open all year round - a special place in the winter with fire going! And just as special in the summer! Lovely hard sand and lifeguard on duty.

We live in swansea and have tried all the beaches- this is our favourite. It has a small choice of cafes but all canny beach-goers know how to pack a picnic and so don't need these too much. Good lifeguard cover in season and a lovely atmosphere . Be mindful of tide times , half the beach is only available... More

A small beach that is still quaint Years ago there was no facilities and they have kept it quiet with just a small cafe/shop and toilets If you are holidaying in the area or on a day out then its a good beach close to the town Parking can be an issue though

Lovely spot which gets very busy when good weather happens. Sometimes hard to get parking. Lots of surfing going on at most times of the day.
