Carreglwyd is a
busy, beach-side Park on the South Gower Coast, overlooking
the picturesque village and Bay of Port Eynon. The fifteen
acre site is surrounded by steep cliffs to one side and
magnificent coastline on the other, and accommodates
caravans, motorhomes and tents in five well-drained and
The 400 pitches are non-marked or specified, enabling
visitors to choose their own spot in relation to the
facilities and the beach, electric pitches however, are allocated upon arrival. Two modern
sanitary blocks serve the Park which comprise of toilets,
showers, laundry and dish-washing areas. We also have an
outdoor wetsuit shower area. We also have disabled
persons and family washrooms which are wheelchair and pram friendly. All
daily needs are catered for at the on-site shop, groceries,
camping accessories, hardware, beach goods and off-licence
as well as gas bottles and appliances. Direct access to the
beach makes this the perfect location for families,
particularly those with young children. Also, for those who
need to keep in touch, wi-fi is available.
The beach has lifeguard cover during the summer months, and
the bay is ideal for bathing, fishing and a variety of water
sports. Boat and PWC owners need to contact Swansea
Council regarding beach access and launching facilities.
The Gower Peninsula is little more than fifteen miles long
and five miles wide, and is unique; the coastal scenery is
unsurpassed - rugged limestone cliffs and rock-bound shores
alternate with splendid sandy bays, each with its own
characteristic and individual allure. The almost insular
character of Gower has been the main factor in the
preservation of the old-world atmosphere which appeals to so
many of its visitors.
From the park, you can directly access the Wales Coastal
Path (Free walkers map available at reception). The
Swansea and Gower section of the path hosts some of the most
beautiful scenery in Wales, and is not to be missed.

Port Eynon is the perfect starting point for exploring the
area, whether by car, bicycle or on foot. The cliff walk to
Rhossili (7miles) via Mewslade and Fall Bay is unrivalled in
the grandeur of its unspoilt scenery, and should be
undertaken by every visitor.
The City of Swansea is 18 miles away by road and is
connected to Port Eynon by an (almost) hourly bus service,
or a drive yourself, will take around 40 minutes.
