Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the gorgeous Gower Peninsula boasts 34 miles of breathtaking coastline and 50 unspoilt beaches. And of all the coves and bays hereabouts, Port Eynon is amongst the finest. Converted from South Gower’s former lifeboat station, the hostel enjoys unparalleled sea views from the large lounge windows and offers guests a face-to-face with the forces of nature.
We're on the most southerly point of the Gower peninsula, facing an award winning beach with safe swimming and rock pools - ideal for wind and kite surfing when the weather is right. We're backed by a wooded headland for shady walks and beautiful spring and early summer flowers. We also sit on the Wales Coastal Path, ideally situated for walks to Rhossili and Oxwich beaches. Look out for boat trips from the beach in Summer, paddle boarding hire and lessons in the village.
Port Eynon itself is an idyllic village with a fun family feel. It is the most tourist-orientated of Gower’s beaches with a few seaside shops selling bits and bobs, beach wear, buckets and spades, ice creams and the like.
