Nice visit for a walk around

Come here to have a walk around the harbour and sometimes a coffee in one of the cafes. Also it has access to Swansea beach which is lovely to walk around too..

Accidentally stumbled upon the marina whilst wandering through Swansea and couldn't believe how clean and modern everything looked. The marina is even home to some business such as bars, restaurants and hotels. Great place to relax and go for a walk.

It hasn't changed all that much over the years, there's a few added residential blocks and of course the tallest building in Swansea with The Grape & Olive on top, offering fantastic views, but we saddened to see quite a few closed...

Walked around the Marina on a weekend, very relaxing looking at the boats, really clean and thoroughly enjoyed. Walked from the Marina up to the County Hall.

The Marina is so beautiful,I enjoy seeing the sea and the boats and all the diverse buildings overlooking the beautiful sea there. I can't say much about it but the views say it all for me.

Traditionally the area has been based round the Tawe Basin moorings, but this is getting a little tatty, and you'd be missing some real highspots if you didn't spread out a bit. Point one: Stay in the Marriott or the Travelodge and be wary of B&Bs on Oystermouth Road. Two: don't pay for parking at the western end of the... More

Amazing place to visit, it does have everything for everyone... Great long beach for blowy walks, loads of bars and restaurants to choose from, little cafes and its only 3 minutes walk from the town. Fond memories and will always go back....
