This is one of the various beaches which can be found around the sand and mud flats of Swansea Bay.  The beach at Norton Road is a mix of sand, shingle and mud, backed by sea defences.

There are some car parking spaces along the A4067 (Mumbles Road) to the south of the beach, and there are a choice of places to eat and drink within a few minutes’ walk.

The nearby ruins of Oystermouth Castle, with its 30-foot high glass-bottomed bridge, are worth a visit if you’re in the area. The castle is open from the beginning of April until the end of September.
