A beautiful bay within easy reach from Swansea by bus in season: 2C at quarter past the hour from bus station stand W, takes about 40mins and cost £2 for a plusbus special offer when we bought our train ticket (bus 4 towards university takes you from railway to bud stations). Otherwise paid parking unless the machine is broken. Toilet... More

Visited here again for my 6th year running. This time stayed at the bay and enjoyed everything it has to offer. Sun, sea and the surfside cafe. Good walks from the bay to Langland and Pwll Du with seals to be spotted en route. Squid and crabs can be found amongst the rock pools at low tide.

Took my daughter & 3 year old grandson. We decided to do "old skool" and buy a cuppa tea to drink on the beach! We bought it from the 1st place as you come from the car park and were served by a jovial chap who made it just as we wanted it and the price was very reasonable. Good... More

Caswell has the benefit of a large car park across the road from the beach. Great sandy, enclosed beach with lifeguard. Numerous rock pools. Nice convenient cafes and small beach shops.

Had a fantastic day at Caswell Bay, very large safe beach, with small pools of water left on the sand suitable for young children. Some cliffs for shade and a toilet block at entrance to the beach, a small cafe and shop also at entrance to beach, 1 small drawback, if it's busy the parking will be limited.

Lovely beach Cove but due to high tide there was such an over crowding on the beach I was literally sitting next to a man I'd never met before!! Even though the bay was beautiful and safe for swimming, it's popularity is so great that it makes it impossible to enjoy on a sunny day. Car parking is a nightmare... More
