At one time a haven for
smugglers, Port Eynon is the most southerly
point on the Gower Peninsula and offers brisk
seaside walks and superb viewpoints. The old
Salt House may also have been used as ‘cover’
for certain criminal activities. Port Eynon’s
churchyard has a memorial to three local
lifeboat crews who lost their lives in 1916.
Culver Hole is a cave that may have been used by smugglers to hide their stash but in the last century the bones of more than 40 people were found here together with parts of Bronze Age burial urns and Iron Age pottery.
