Caswell Bay Beach

Surf on the choppy waters of this scenic bay and trek along the nature paths for gorgeous views of cliffs and headlands.

With its gently sloping sand and picturesque coastline, Caswell Bay Beach is a family hotspot on the Gower Peninsula. The shoreline backs onto the Bishop’s Wood Nature Reserve, an area of limestone woodland and grassland. Enjoy the serene ambiance in this wild area away from the city center.

Take surfing lessons on the mild waves that are perfect for beginners. Learn from more experienced surfers on the water. Go beachcombing with the kids to find sea life, shells and other gems. The area is known for its rock pools at low tide, where crabs, sea slugs and octopuses dwell.

Walk along the beach to view the rugged scenery of the Southern Wales coastline. Encounter intriguing rock formations. Dine at one of the cafés that stay open year-round. Purchase souvenirs and beach equipment from the shop.

Learn about the 1919 murder mystery that took 40 years to unravel. Evidence was finally found in the form of a sack of human bones in a disused mine near the beach in 1961, but the murderer had died 3 years earlier.

Visit some of the nearby villages for a glimpse into the culture of suburban Swansea.  See the 12th-century Oystermouth Castle and enjoy the views of the sea. Visit the beaches of Swansea Bay, Pwll Du Bay, Bracelet Bay and Limeslade Bay.

Clamber over the rocks at the Mumbles and capture photos of the 18th-century lighthouse. Walk along the pier from the 1800s for views of the headland.

The beach is open year-round and is free to access. Make use of the outdoor showers and bathroom facilities. Lifeguards patrol the beach daily from early May to September.

Drive for 7 miles (11 kilometers) west along the coast from Swansea to reach Caswell Bay Beach, a little farther west than the headland of the Mumbles and Bracelet Bay Beach. Take a bus from the city center to the beach in an hour. You can park your car, for a fee, in the lot beside the bay.
