Port Eynon Bay

Port Eynon’s sand-dune edged Blue Flag beach is another firm favourite as its gently sloping beach, lifeguard supervision between the flags during peak season and often calmer waters make it perfect for younger family members. A combination of sand and pebbles, the beach at low tide also reveals tree trunks from an ancient forest that also create rockpools in which to go looking for starfish and seashells.

A stroll to the east along the beach or via the path in the dunes behind leads to neighbouring Horton beach whilst a short walk west brings you to the Salt House which was built to produce salt in the mid-16th century.

Port Eynon beach does not allow dogs between the lifeguard hut and the eastern edge of Horton beach access May to September inclusive (dogs are allowed to the right of the lifeguard hut out to the Salt House and on Horton beach). Behind the beach there is the main public car park and toilets.

Opposite the car park there are two fish and chip shops and a gift shop which open seasonally, as does The Beach House Surf & Coffee Shop. Also located within the village are The Ship Inn and Smugglers Beach Bar & Kitchen which open all year round.
