|Port Eynon was once a bustling village in the 19th century, also infamous for it's smuggling activities.
But now it is very much quieter.The beach is fairly wide and sandy with some rock pools for the kids. However, be warned when the weather is warm, there have been reports of Adders ( the only venomous snake in the UK) lurking in the long grass to the sides of the beach!
To the right of the beach are the remains of an old salt house and a late 18th century cottage.
There is is a very good Fish and chip restaurant and take-away just behind me as I took the photo above, and also in the little village there are a couple of pubs and restaurant.
Parking is very good (90p 1Hour, £1.80 2Hours and £3.00 all day) there are parking spaces for the disabled almost on the beach. Toilets near the beach are clean and suitable for the disabled.
