The beach is a lovely place to visit if you are in South Wales. There is a water park, children's park and small skate park. Also, there is a children's golf course, however, this is very expensive and only open during summer months. There are two cafe/ restaurants right on the sea front with both inside and outside seating. During... More

This is by far the best beach I've ever been to, as it's really, really beautiful. I would recommend coming here on a warm day with friends and family. You can also come here with your partner for a romantic stroll. The cafe is good too. They serve drinks, food and ice cream.

My partner and I enjoyed this lovely beach. Even in the winter and the wind, it was very pleasant and well kept. A must if visiting the area! Great for dog walking and paddling, picked up lots of shells and would love to revisit in the summer.

Excellent beach, long sandy beach of a few miles with a built walkway right along the front. Few boulders by the walkway but sand, sand sand the rest of the way. Good surf at the right time of year and there's a few shops/restaurants to get a snack or drink

Aberavon gets overlooked as a family day beach due to its location to the steel works. But locals know how great this beach is every summers day. Over a mile of flat perfect sand leading up to the Neath estuary. There are dunes, walks and two cafe/restaurants right on the beach front. There's a park for the kids, both little... More

Fab expanse of sandy beach, great for dogs and walkers and nice promenade above. Firm golden sand, invigorating sea air and a resort that is not commercialised but taking steps to regain the heady success of decades ago

Superb sandy beach, rolling breakers for surfers and a wonderful view across to Swansea Bay. Nice promenade to walk on if tide is in and generally well kept area despite being right next to the steel works.

What a lovely place to visit, the views of Swansea Bay and beyond. Very popular with young families in the two new playgrounds and adjacent skate ramp. Eaten lunch in nearby Franco,s fish restaurant, whitebait healthy option and a coffee for lunch. The interior of the restaurant is so nice, with many seats close to the view of the Aberavon... More
