Caswell Bay (West Glamorgan) Reviews
Newest Review: ... very full - particularly on sunny days. there is no free parking avilable. The bay is enclosed by cliffs on each side, which contain a few hidden caves for the adventurous to find. The beach has a small stream running down the middle of it, but is so shallow it is easily crossed in shoes without getting your feet wet. There are few stones, only perfect sand right across it. When the tide is in most of the beach is cut off pushing all visitors into a small space, so things can get crowded. The beach has toilet facilities and a few beach shops, selling the usual buckets and spades type merchandise, as well as chips, drinks etc. The be... more

As a local to Caswell and its nearby competing beaches i feel i am well placed to rate this beach. Caswell is a picturesque beach on the south side of the Gower peninsula in south wales. It is about a half hours drive from Swansea City centre, and can also be easily reached by a regular bus service for a reasonable price. There is a pay and display car park right on the beach. Although for the majority of the year there is ample space in this car park, during the peak season this can become very full - particularly on sunny days. there is no free parking avilable. The bay is enclosed by cliffs on each side, which contain a few hidden caves for ... Read the complete review

Caswell Bay is my favourite beach on the Gower Peninsula, where you are spoilt for choice and has all the ingredients for a perfect family day by the sea; there is a car park to the back of the beach (on hot summer days get there early. At high tide there is only a little bit of sand left but when the tide goes out there is a wonderful expanse of golden sand and I think the best place to sit is around the corner where you can get an alcove to yourself with an uninterrupted view of the sea in front of you. At the back of the car park is a nature reserve you can explore although have never been able to drag myself away from the beach to do so! There is a cliff path ... Read the complete review

Summer’s here (believe it or not) and there will be some sun (I hope), so of course we’ll all be heading down to the beach to soak it up and maybe even do a little boogy boarding! So where’s the best place to go in South Wales? Caswell Bay of course! The Beach A mile long sandy strip looking over to Ireland (you have to have very very good – we’re talking Superman – eyesight to see it though!). The strong Atlantic waves make good surfing and reach heights of 10ft! Boogy boarding here is awesome and so easy. Boards can be hired or bought for a few pounds from the beach shop. The area is also very popular ... Read the complete review

I lived in S. Wales until I was 20yrs old and did not realise it's attractions until I left to live in England. All our summer family holidays were spent at Caswell Bay on the Gower. The Gower is situated a few miles West of Swansea. It is a beautiful unspoilt area of outstanding natural beauty which is why it is almost totally National Trust. The beaches are magic - remote, golden sands, cliffs, some backed with sand dunes, some with ruined castles or ancient churches. The little villages are reached by narrow twisting country lanes, edged with wild roses, honeysuckle and a myriad other wild flowers.The quietness and emptiness of some beaches is due to the fact that Read the complete review
