This beach forms part of the extensive sand and mud flats that make up Swansea Bay. County Hall Beach is the area of the bay closest to the mouth of the River Tawe and the West Pier. The urban beach is backed by a promenade and marina, next to which are residential flats and the Swansea Central Library. Cars can be parked at the Civic Centre public car park. The vibrant city centre, with all its shops, eateries and other amenities is a short walk away.
