Aberavon Sea front
Many beaches are really easily accessed from Tan yr Eglwys Cottages. The closest and probably the most “family friendly” is Aberavon Sea front. Aberavon seafront is one of Wales’ longest beaches having a contemporary promenade that overlooks Swansea Bay. It is popular whatever the weather. In the winter the promenade is full of wrapped up walkers, and in the summer, the beach attracts families who love the facilities on offer. The adventure golf, skate park, aqua splash play pool and the adventure playground mean that there is something for everyone to do. The peaceful sunken gardens are great if you are looking for something a little more tranquil. The beauty of Aberavon is that the beach is a vast expanse of sand, shoaling very gradually to sea making it safer for young children but nevertheless is also a surfing ‘hotspot’ and whatever month of the year, you are sure to find a crowd of surfers in search of the perfect wave!
There are two cafes on the sea front promenade both of which are family friendly. Annexed to the larger is a “fish & chip” shop which also offers an at table service. Fish & chips on the beach what more could you possibly want?!
