They say that Port Eynon was named after a Welsh prince of the eleventh century who had supposedly built a castle here. Port Eynon with its quaint Norman church and 600 year old font and the Gower peninsula are full of history and there are many legends of smugglers and seafarers’ tales to uncover.
Today Port Eynon is a bustling village filled with holidaymakers in the summer months and a quieter more subtle experience in the Autumn and Winter months.
