This is a great beach! Carpark opposite, though full by 10.30am in the summer! Food, toilets, little pools on the beach when the tide goes out for the kids to play in, even a mountain stream for kids and dads to divert to make canals. We love it!

Very pretty and excellent firm sand - perfect for building sand castles! Food was good and well-priced. Toilets not bad for beach toilets! Car parking was tricky at the height of summer, but there is a drop off point near the beach if you're coming with kids/lots of paraphernalia!

Caswell Bay is the first beach that you will come to when driving from Swansea onto the Gower. Just look out for the signs on your left and you cant miss it. It has a huge beach and stunning views out to sea, and out of season is just serene and beautiful.

A beautiful location to spend a holiday. I've returned here annually for the last few years and Caswell really is a delight.

Love his bay - the beach is gorgeous, sandy with cliff walks and rock pools. There are a couple of cafes and some take way food shops, beach items and sweeties. My favourite Swansea beach, it does get busy but if you have the weather you can't beat it.

It's worth a visit if you have children. Good sand, lifeguards on duty, cafes, toilets and outside showers. Parking is an issue though - the car park does fill up.

This is a lovely but small bay with a few cafes and family friendly. There is parking across the street and you can access the sandy beach through a ramp if you are wheelchair bound. Excellent for surfing, swimming and paddle boarding. You can also access this beach from Swansea Bus station if you are on holiday during the summer.... More
