Visited early May bank holiday car park close to beach £6 all day with pay by card facility, handy cafe, lots of rock pools full of starfish which amused the kids. Clean free to use toilets (tenby please note). Car park could fill up in height of summer I think

A lovely little bay with a gently sloping sand beach. Great for people of all ages and for all activities - surfing, paddle-boarding, making sand castles, and in our case, sitting and people watching.

Quite busy. The car park just about coped with the turnover of visitors.
OK toilet facilities.

Small cafe (Surfside) open right at beachside - serves nice coffee and makes nice toasties and more. Reasonably priced given its location and monopoly.

Good starting point for a coastal path walk.

A great place to spend a few hours

Although most of the beaches in this area are beautiful, Caswell bay was the best beach we found during our holiday. We arrived early, secured our spot and spent the next 6 hours exploring, playing on the sand and in the sea. The sea felt unseasonably warm which was a real bonus! The sand was golden and clean. Parking is just over the road, at £6 for all day it's great value. I would suggest getting there early though as it's not a huge car park.
There are a couple of cafes there, and a kiosk/shop selling beach goods, hot and cold drinks, snacks, ice creams etc.

Have to pay for Car Park..soooo popular with Surfers (Llangennith being another..)
Beautifully clean beach - accessed across road from car park, so its popular with young families, OAPs & surfers..
Coastal path to Mumbles - a huge bonus!
Two Cafes on beach front - personally prefer in the Winter months when quieter...

This bay is amazing and was our favourite out of the handful we visited on our hols! The sand is golden and pure and when the tide is out is stunning! There are so many little nooks to sit in and relax. No crowds and my dog loved it. We went twice, walking from Langland one day on the coastal path which is beautiful.

I visit it many times in the year. In the winter it is a lot colder , obviously but just sitting anywhere round the dry part of the sand even in winter gives one a feeling of calm! Summer becomes the time when all the families arrive and revel in the sun and watch the kiddies enjoy the sand castles and sea.....just relax!!!!!

This is a beautiful bay to come to with a fantastic sand beach and excellent view. Great for people of all ages - there were people paddle-boarding, families making sand castles, and people just sitting in the sun. There is a lovely walkable path around the cliffs to Langland Bay. A great place to spend a few hours.

Went to Caswell Bay for the first time in years with my children, on a very hot day, was like being on holiday which we have unfortunately not been able to do this year.

Nice and clean, very good facilities, clean toilets and cheap food and drink.

Warning for other visitors is to take coins for the parking. £6 all day. The card machine does not work and to download the app to pay online requires a signal, which is hard to get. Spent a whole hour trying to pay before we could chill out and enjoy the beach. So the council really need to sort that out in this modern covid-19 world!!

We came here on a windy day but it was warm enough to sit out on the many benches provided. This beach was recommended as being easy to access, and it is. The car park was close by and a level walk, Toilets and cafe were very handy. Shame the wind was so strong, so we did not stay long.

Parking is a complete and utter nightmare no matter what time of the day you go. Twice we been at different times one being aroubd 10.30am and another after 5 and twice its taken a hr to park. I don't understand why the council cant build a 2 story carpark as they have the space to do so.

As well, the toilets are stinking. Considering we are in a pandemic i dont think they ever get cleaned!

Apart from them 3 bad reviews the beach is something else. Its stunning. The ice cream hut is lovely serving hot food, drinks and ice cream all staff are lovely.
There a nice coffee shop as well again staff lovely and both places spotless

Enough bins in the area so no excuses of litter and they are regularly emptied
