Oxwich Bay, Swansea

4.4
#1 of 26 in Outdoors in Swansea
Visit Oxwich Bay and explore the tidal pools and dunes of one of Britain’s premier beaches. It’s not heavily developed like other beaches, so you’ll still find wildlife in the area. Take a walk along the 4 km (2.5 mi) coast and look for birds and mammals. The beach is popular for water sports, so try diving, sailing, or just enjoying an easy swim. Walk along the sea cliffs to Port Eynon Bay. Amenities include easy parking and restrooms, and the beach is accessible. Stop at the restaurant nearby or enjoy an ice cream if you get hungry. Make Oxwich Bay a centerpiece of your Swansea vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Swansea online tour planner .
