Aberavon Beach, also known as Aberavon Sands, is a 3-mile stretch of sandy beach on the north-eastern edge of Swansea Bay in Port Talbot, Wales. With its high breaker waves, it is popular with surfers. A traditional “bucket and spade” resort for the South Wales Valleys during the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s, Aberavon Beach was once an area of sand dunes known as Aberavon Burrows. Changing economic and social conditions led to the decline of the resort. Concerns have been expressed about coastal erosion affecting Aberavon Beach and various other beaches in Swansea Bay.

  • A very nice sandy beach although it doesn’t offer much differentiation to sunset setup.
  • Nice visibility to the sunset with its wide open environment.
  • Have to come here by car, though it is quite easy to locate.
  • A very idle beach during the evening with almost no one around.
