Season: spring

There is a magnificent arc to this beach, which seems to frame the bay, particularly on an ebb tide, like the one that greeted me for this re-visit.  It was a balmy, hot afternoon at Port Eynon, with a fused horizon, due to the heat haze.  This created an other-worldly atmosphere, dream-like in the warmth, accompanied by the rhythm of the waves.  There’s a fine seven mile walk along the coast from here to Rhossili.  Highly recommended, a special place.   Here is a fine aerial view of the beach and their cottages, kindly provided by Supporter Croft Acre Holiday Cottages:

Season: autumn

One of the Gower Peninsula’s most popular beaches, Port Eynon features safe swimming and is a magnet for watersports enthusiasts.  As well as boats, wind surfing and kite surfing is enjoyed on this beach.   There are campsites and accommodation within a mile of the beach, which is backed by dunes and shrubs. There’s a fun family feel to Port Eynon, which features a stunning landscape and idyllic nearby village, in short all that most visitors will require.  You can keep up with Port Eynon live, via Croft Acre Holiday Cottages’ webcam, here.
