With its 3-mile stretch of golden sands that shelve gently into the waters of Swansea Bay, Aberavon Beach is perfect for sunny days spent playing beach games, building sandcastles, swimming and scoffing chips and ice cream.
This seaside award-winning resort is especially popular with families for its cleanliness and quality of facilities available, plus the variety of places to eat nearby. It’s safe too – lifeguards patrol the beach during the summer.
Should you run out of things to do on the beach, there’s adventure golf, a new Aqua Splash zone (for 2021), skateboard park, plus adventure and toddler playgrounds. The leisure and fitness centre and six-screen cinema offer handy rain-shower contingencies.
The beach is also popular with surfers and kite-surfers and there’s a dedicated area for both at the eastern end of the beach.
Dogs are welcome all year round on the dock beach, although there are restrictions on the main beach during the summer months.
