If the sun is shining, where better to head than to one of Swansea’s gorgeous beaches – and there are lots to choose from – nice safe sandy ones, interesting rocky ones and beaches with breathtaking views and acres of space.

Play Safe

Some beaches have strong tides and currents, so always check the weather and tidal conditions before swimming or any activity. If available, always follow warning flags and notices.

RNLI lifeguard patrolled beaches are best for swimming, especially for children.

Swansea is blessed with beautiful beaches, and we want everyone to enjoy them all year round.

Many of the beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status, which reflects important things like water quality, beach management and how clean they are.

How can you help?

We want all visitors to our beaches to respect them and help us keep them clean.

And it’s really easy…
All we ask is for visitors to use litter bins that are available to dispose of their rubbish. If litter bins are full then we are calling on beach users to take their litter home and dispose of it.

Waste from disposable and standard barbecues can be hazardous, particularly to children. To ensure the safe disposal of barbecues, including hot coals, fire-proof BBQ bins are available at the following beaches – Caswell, Langland, Rotherslade and Swansea Bay (near The Secret Beach Bar and Kitchen).
