It shares the bay with Port Eynon which is located at the Western end.
Like many Gower villages its roots are mainly agricultural, but Horton also has a long connection with the lifeboat and Methodism.

In the centre of the bay are two orange buoys that mark the remains of the Prince Ivanhoe. The Prince Ivanhoe was used a pleasure craft, but on the 3rd August 1981 it hit something just off the edge of Port Eynon Point. The skipper assessed the situation and as they were quickly taking on water, “… the vessel was turned quickly around and came right up onto the beach!”, according to one onlooker.
