Location

Port Eynon, Wales, United Kingdom

Port Eynon was once a thriving harbour, exporting oysters, fish, limestone and salt to nearby Swansea and towns and cities on the Bristol Channel, which it overlooks. Its sheltered position allegedly made it a haunt of smugglers and at low tide a good place to explore is Culver Hole which is variously described as a huge pigeon loft (albeit accessible only from the seaward side of the cliff, completely hidden from view and half a mile away from the nearest house) and a smugglers’ hideaway for contraband goods.

Port Eynon is a friendly and welcoming village. Numerous activities take place in the village hall throughout the year which are open to visitors ie; cinema club, food fayre and there is also the popular Cafe Cattwg which runs every Saturday morning in the church.

There is a good village pub serving locally brewed craft beer and other refreshments plus meals, a family friendly restaurant and a couple of beachside fish and chips and a coffee shop. All of these are a genuine three-minute walk or less from our front door.

The beach’s Blue Flag status means that it meets the stringent international standards of the Federation of Environmental Education’s Blue Flag criteria including standards for water quality, safety, environmental education and information

During the summer season (1 May through to 30 September) the RNLI have Lifeguards patrolling the whole beach.

Between 1 May and 30 September dogs are not allowed on the central part of the beach between the Lifeguard Hut, which is directly in front of the beach access from Port Eynon, and the Lifeboat station at Horton. Dogs are however allowed on the beach either side of this and there is ample exercise space, beach, rockpools and sea to be enjoyed both ends.

The Port Eynon and Horton RNLI lifeboat is at the Horton end of the beach, with its own shop and there’s usually an open day in the summer when you can go and chat to the crew, see the boat and buy Welsh cakes and other goodies made by local supporters.
All of the coastal paths around Gower are dog friendly but we ask you to follow the country code at all times. Sheep and cattle at times graze right up to the cliff edges.

There are a number of interesting historic sites just a short walk from Dellside. Culver Hole we have already mentioned. The Salthouse dates from the seventeenth century when salt was a valuable commodity and the low rainfall, sheltered environment and numerous rocky pools around Skysea on the western point of Port Eynon Bay, meant that harvesting it from the sea here made economic sense. Inevitably, the building’s position at the far end of the natural harbour mean that it too has an association with smuggling. The many pools around the Salthouse were also apparently used to sort and store oysters, before they were shipped to Swansea and thence to London. You’ll be lucky to find many oysters, but the pools still make for fabulous rockpooling and there are crabs and lobsters to be found at low tide.
Gower is also a haven for watersports such as surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, sailing and SUPs (SUPs can be hired locally from the Beach Cafe)
