I simply love this beach and regularly go for long strolls along it come rain or shine. It's great for kids to play, for surfing, jet skiing, wind and kite surfing.

Needs a clean up, full of people in football shirts, more concerned in drinking and singing things about blue and red?

Nice beach: sandy with a walkway by the water and the Welsh Coast Path. Reasonable amount of benches. Nice views to Mumbles and Gower peninsula to the one side, industry to the other but it doesn't detract. Much nicer than English beaches!

A great level promenade to enjoy the sea front. Choose to pop in for a coffee at Remos or fish and chips if you are feeling peckish. It's a shame that there is not more along the promenade as the beach is excellent and kept clean.

A wonderful beach that goes on for miles, peaceful in the most part, but not too far away from a cafe for a warming cup of tea on a breezy day. Great to blow away the cobwebs

Long clean sandy beach, water is clean and plenty of amenities. Car parking is plentiful and cheap. Bring the bikes because the front is flat and there is a dedicated cycle lane.
