The wildlife, natural and historical features of Swansea Bay provide an exceptionally high quality environment in which to live, work and develop sustainable tourism.

Swansea Bay is nationally important for its wildlife and habitats. The character of Swansea Bay is a blend of many factors, past and present, including physical geology, natural processes and climate, built environment and wildlife.

At 10.4m Swansea Bay has the second highest tidal range in the world. At each low tide, a large expanse of seashore is uncovered and waiting to be discovered along the 8km long, main sweep of the bay. Out of the 19 main beaches in the county, Swansea Beach is the longest.

Swansea Bay SINC (Site of Importance for Nature Conservation) stretches across the whole bay, from the dunes near Swansea Marina to Mumbles Pier. This designation helps to conserve nationally important habitats and species such as sea stock and is of particular importance for rare inhabiting invertebrates e.g. whorl snail.
