Our Coast

The Neath Port Talbot coastline is one of dramatic contrasts, where the valleys drop down to meet the sea and where nature sits side-by-side with the man-made.

Probably the best way to explore our coast is under your own steam, either on foot or by bike. Cyclists can take a section of The Celtic Trail, a series of dedicated routes on the National Cycle Network stretching from the Welsh border in the east to the tip of Pembrokeshire in the west.

 

Walkers will enjoy the moderate pace of the 16-mile Lowland section of the Wales Coast Path, which also happens to be the last leg of the South Wales section. Besides the spectacular views of Swansea Bay, highlights include the large expanse of Margam Moors, the Brunel Tower, the towpath along the Tennant Canal and Swansea Marina. Aberavon Beach, roughly the halfway-point of the route, was awarded a Keep Wales Tidy Seaside Award in 2021 for the quality of its facilities and cleanliness.
