The sandy bay has many rock pools, the remains of the Salthouse, a boat slipway and lifeguards during the summer. There is a quaint village, once the centre for fishing, good parking and shops/cafés in season. Camping facilities are nearby and a bus service to other parts of Gower. The coastal path leads on to Port Eynon Point.

At the end of the cliff path from Port Eynon is Mewslade Bay. Swimming and surfing are popular pastimes here and the bay is surrounded by steep limestone cliffs and home to many birds including peregrine falcons. At low water there is plenty of sand to enjoy and access is possible to Fall Bay. Access can also be achieved from the main road (car park) with a good path down the valley to the bay.
