About Swansea

Popular holiday destinations, Swansea and Caves Beach, provide a link between the ocean and the lake. Beautiful beaches, sandy inlets and open lake foreshore areas are perfect for water enthusiasts. You can explore the sea caves at low tide on Caves Beach, venture out into the open waters with a deep sea fishing adventure or catch a wave at the patrolled beach.

Be sure to spend a day at Blacksmiths, a popular family beach which is patrolled in the warmer months. You can can also explore Catherine Hill Bay, a tiny heritage village that takes you on a trip through a time warp. Largely undeveloped, the coastline here has a stunning beach, popular for fishing, surfing and swimming. Finally, experience Caves Beach, which has a network of sea caves at its southern end, great picnic and barbecue facilities.
