Swansea Bay stretches from the Maritime quarter of Swansea to the fishing village of Mumbles.

It is very accessible, running adjacent to the road. There is plenty of car parking and access for prams. Usually there is some beach, even at high tide. Many people use this beach for water sports.

Facilities include:

  • shops
  • car park (pay and display)
  • toilets
  • disabled access
  • places to eat & drink
  • phone
  • seasonal dog ban 1/4 to 30/9
  • suitable for water sports

Attention is drawn to the Mumbles Lifeboat Station at the far end of the bay. It serves as a reminder that the sea is to be enjoyed but overall, respected.

A seasonal dog ban is in place from 1st April to 30th Spetember each year. The areas affected by this are from the River Tawe to the slip opposite Swansea Baths and from the beach access Sketty Lane to the Northern edge of the slip opposite the West Cross Inn.

The promenade runs West to Knab Rock.
