Port Eynon is the perfect beach for all the family, with its wide expanse of sand and exciting rock pools to explore. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months and dog access is restricted in certain areas during these times.

At the western end of Port Eynon Bay is Port Eynon itself. To find it follow the A4118 to its end from Swansea. There is plenty of car parking right next to the beach, cafes, restaurants, caravan sites, toilets and all the other usual beach facilties.

The beach and town can be busy in the summer months, but are quiet out of season.

Conditions are very similar to those at Horton and are perfect for windsurfing of all levels, kitesurfing and sometimes surfing. All westerly wind directions are sailable, with NW winds being offshore. SW's are the best, and low tide better as there is no wind shadow. Big SW swells and northerly winds can produce some quality surf, but these days are rare. Port Eynon point however picks up plenty of swell and offers a sucky right-hand waves in shallow rock bottomed water.
Another thing of note on this beach is the gradual disappearance of the sand, exposing the rocks that lie below it. This coastal erosion has been blamed on large scale sand dredging in the Bristol Channel.
