About the Area
The village itself is fairly small and extends from the beach to the top of the hill. Port Eynon village has two Fish and Chip Shops and a gift shop at the sea front, a Youth Hostel, Pub and a restaurant. The Youth Hostel is a converted lifeboat house, situated on the south end of the bay, near the salt house. A neighbouring village, Overton, is to the north west of Port Eynon and footpaths from Overton lead to Overton Mere, a stony and rocky beach. Also, the village of Horton is at the east end of the main beach, approximately half a mile from Port Eynon. Public transport is good throughout the season, and buses link the beaches so you walk to a beach and catch the bus back. Port Eynon is situated on the Wales Coastal path and is well signposted from Rhossili and Oxwich.
