At just 100 metres in length, Spiky Beach isn’t ideal for long walks.
For that, you need to head just north of Swansea to Nine Mile Beach, where you’ve got 13 kilometres of sand to play with. This pristine, dog-friendly beach is usually very quiet, and with the western end bordering Swansea, it’s easy to access. At the eastern end of the beach, accessed from Dolphin Sands Road, you’ll find Bagot Point where the Swan River opens into bay. The views from here across to the Hazards, especially in late afternoon, are breathtaking.
