Swansea Marina in the citys historic Maritime Quarter, combines the vibrancy of a city centre location with the tranquility of a waterfront and beach resort.
Five miles from the village of Mumbles, and linked by a promenade, it is bordered on one side by a vast expanse of sandy beach and bustling Swansea on the other.
The Maritime Quarter includes over 1000 homes, some new and contemporary and others dating back to Georgian times.
Centred round a dock, a holiday apartment in the Marina is your chance to soak up an area with real maritime spirit. Swing bridges and locks, yachts, boats and motor cruisers, listed buildings and sculptures all add to the atmosphere as do cafes, bars, shops and restaurants.
Alongside and linked by an iconic Sail Bridge, is SA1, a £138million dockside development.

Water sports on the beach, sailing lessons, cinemas, bowling, clubbing and high street shopping as well as Swansea Market, the largest indoor market in Wales.The LC, a superb multi-million pound leisure complex and water park is literally a stones throw away, as is the National Waterfront Museum telling the story of Wales industrial and maritime history.

For sports fans, both Swansea City FC and Ospreys Rugby Club share the majestic Liberty Stadium a short drive away.
