Caswell is a hugely popular sandy beach mainly because of its accessibility by bus and car, the parking facilities and the array of small shops to be found at the top half of the beach. The top part of the bay is usually packed in Summer as people like the convenience of having ice cream, drinks etc close to hand.... More

A lovely little beach and lots if rock pools for the children to explore. Ample parking spaces although we like to park in Langland and walk over.

Caswell Bay is a lovely clean beach with lots of lovely sand for children. The cafe is well worth a visit especially in winter when you can sit and watch the sea and surfers, there is a very welcome log fire so you feel you are outside but still in a lovely warm cafe.

This is a great beach to take children of all ages with plenty of sand and caves and rocks for climbing for older children. The cafe here welcomes dogs, serves the best bacon butties ever and even has a bin of blankets you can get out and wrap around yourself if it's breezy. A lovely brunch destination for all the...

I love this beach but a great pity to see this beach has not recovered from the damage done in March 2014 when stones were moved from the eastern side of the beach to the western end near Redcliffe. The appearance of the beach changes almost daily depending on winds and currents but digging on the beach with my children... More

A large expanse of sand especially when the tide is out (and it does go out a long way) with three cafes/coffee shops at the entrance to the beach. Also home to a surfing school.

The beach is fantastic but its absolutely rammed on a nice day. There is a pay and display car park but it gets rammed on a hot day, you'd be better off getting a lift down or riding your bike. There is a nice little snack shop and gift shop to buy bucket and spades and such, ice creams tea,... More

Dog friendly. It is nice to be able to sit inside a cafe witht he dog rather than outside on a winters morning.

Fantastic beach for families, large car park across the road, shops for the kids and as the tide goes out a fabulous beach, can get crowded though when the tide comes in, my favourite is around the left hand cliff when the tide is low, golden sands and clear water
