Jersey Marine is a village in Neath Port Talbot county borough, Walesmarker, UKmarker located about east of Swanseamarker. It falls within the Coedffranc Westmarker ward.

Jersey Marine is centered on a main road formed by Ashleigh Terrace, coming from a junction with the A483 road (Fabian Way), which curves to the east along New Road leading to Llandarcymarker. The A483, Fabian Way, is normally considered the gateway into Swansea City Centremarker, therefore locals say that the road is part of the city despite the village being part of Neath Port Talbot. The local primary in the village is the Crymlyn Primary School.

The village includes the Pant Y Sais Nature Reserve, a fen area featuring a circular boardwalk which connects with the tow path of the Tennant Canal.

A new distribution centre for Amazon.co.uk is sited south of the village on the site of a former cable manufacturing plant. It opened on 16 April 2008.[311798]

Jersey Marine tower

Jersey Marine is most famous to locals for its tower. This is a four storey octagonal tower that was built in the Victorian era. The tower was designed to provide a panoramic view of the surrounding area. It was built as part of the development of Jersey Marine as a holiday resort. Having fallen into disrepair, it was fully restored in 2006 as part of The Towers Hotel and is now used as a bridal suite.

Jersey Marine beach

Jersey Marine beach stretches from the River Neathmarker estuary to Swansea Docksmarker. It is backed by sand dunes at Crymlyn Burrowsmarker to the north. To the northeast lies the golf course of the Swansea Bay Golf Club. Heavy industrial sites are prominent to the eastern and western ends of the beach. It is a very quiet beach in all seasons compared to its neighbouring beaches, due to limited access. The only access by road is off the Fabian Way at the Jersey Marine roundabout.
