Cruising

Swansea Marina is ideally situated to enable you to enjoy some of the finest areas by boat.

For those wishing to sail locally our area covers the beautiful Gower coast.  There is a gallery of photographs at the bottom of this page which were all taken in Swansea Bay and around the coast of Gower

Whether its the wide sweep of Oxwich Bay or the seclusion of Pwll Du, there is a destination to suit every sailor.  With their lovely sandy beaches to anchor off and clear waters for swimming and diving, the beaches of Gower are perfect for sailing.

You can find more information about sailing around Swansea and the Gower at the Visit Swansea Bay tourism site.

Further afield, Ilfracombe is about 4hours sail to the south and makes a perfect day trip.  Further to the west lies Lundy Island, with Padstow and the North Cornish coast beyond.Sailing west on the South Wales coast will bring you to Tenby and then Milford Haven. For longer trips and holidays, Ireland, and the Scilly Isles are popular destinations.
