This pretty, sheltered beach near Mumbles is a favourite amongst learners who come here for the safer, smaller waves.
This flat, sandy beach generally has small surf all year round so perfect for learning to surf and there's easy parking at the rear of the beach.
It can get bigger in the winter months and has a fairly sheltered aspect from strong winds but it's rare to find really clean waves here.
When the surf does get bigger, the beach tends to close out but you might just get lucky.
More experienced surfers tend to surf around the corner at Langland but if it's really crowded there - Caswell is always an option.
