Watersports in Port Eynon

Overview

 Body boarding in the bay at Port Eynon is a must. Hire your wetsuit and body board direct from the hostel, run down to the beach and let the water fun begin! Llangennith is the big surf beach in Gower, it's almost three miles long and always has surf - if you're new to the sport you can hire boards or take a lesson here as well. If you're still feeling restless, try windsurfing in Oxwich Bay. Again, there’s no need to take the car anywhere if you don’t want to. Take it easy on the award-winning beach, enjoy a swim, or harness some wind power and try sailing or kite boarding. This stretch of coast is a stunning and varied landscape of cliff scenery, woodland and dunes that’s rich in wildlife and history.
