One of the Gower Peninsula’s most popular beaches, Port Eynon is safe for swimming and is a magnet for water sports enthusiasts. Boating, windsurfing and kitesurfing are enjoyed here. The beach is backed by dunes and shrubs and there are campsites and accommodation nearby. Port Eynon is a happy place for families, with a stunning landscape and an idyllic village nearby. There is a magnificent arc to the beach, which seems to frame the bay, particularly on an ebb tide. On this occasion it was a balmy, hot afternoon, with the horizon out of focus due to the heat haze. This created an other worldly atmosphere, dreamlike in the warmth, accompanied by the rhythm of the waves. There is a fine seven mile walk along the coast from here to Rhossili.
A special place for Dai and Tina.
Another warm afternoon at Port Eynon on Gower.
Port Eynon is designed for the holidaymaker. The crescent-shaped beach is sandy and everything behind it is there for the benefit of visitors. From holiday cottages to a fish ‘n chip shop, from restaurants to gift shops, you will feel well looked after from arrival to departure. It’s ironic then that a visit such as mine during this autumn shoulder season should showcase the natural beauty of this place, which of course is why it became so popular as a visitor destination in the first place.
The pull of the sea for William.
