Wales Coast Awards - Blue Flag 2024

On a low tide, ancient peat beds are exposed on the west side of the bay, near to the boat lane. The beach was a popular place for oyster fishing in the past and also a haunt of smugglers. Visitors can enjoy a range of water sports here as well as relaxing on the golden sands. The impressive sand dunes at the eastern side of the beach stretch along the coast as far as the neighbouring village of Horton. Access to the beach for disabled people is good with designated accessibility parking in front of the beach. There is some seating close to this parking area and a boardwalk on to the beach. The headlands form part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), whilst the bay area makes up part of the Carmarthenshire Estuary Special The Area of Conservation.

Toilets, refreshments, parking. Port Eynon village has a selection of cafes, restaurants and shops. Dog restrictions May - end September from the eastern edge of the steps to the beach to the eastern edge of the access to Horton beach.
