South Wales Police say a man's body has been found at Aberavon Beach at around 7.30am on Friday morning.
Enquiries are ongoing into the circumstances surrounding the death which is currently being treated as unexplained.
The man known as 'Dic Penderyn' will be commemorated today in Aberavon. Twenty five people took part in the walk from Pyle to St Mary's Church in Aberavon.
Penderyn was a Welsh miner who was hanged nearly 200 years ago. He was sentenced to death for stabbing a solider in the Merthyr uprising of 1831.
At that time people protested his innocence, and the case has been cited as a grave miscarriage of justice for generations.
ITV Wales Cymru news has been shown a letter of support, from Penderyn's relatives, over a call for a posthumous pardon.

He's campaigned on many issues, including the new Swansea University Science & Innovation Campus which is set to open in 2015.
Dr Hywel Francis has announced that he will not seek re-election as the MP for Aberavon in the 2015 General Election.
Having served the constituency since 2001, Dr Francis said:
The Big Lottery fund has awarded £500,000 for a new church community centre in one of South Wales' most deprived areas.
St. Paul's Church in Aberavon plans to build a brand new community centre in its grounds to replace the current one which is no longer fit for purpose.
The Welsh Government awarded a grant of £300,000 earlier this year and coupled with the boost from the Big Lottery Fund, work is expected to begin on the project in early 2014.
Called the St Paul’s Centre, the glass fronted building will be built around a central courtyard area which will include a cafe, shop and garden.
There are plans to cater for youth clubs, pensioners, toddler groups, jobs clubs and even wedding receptions.
Revd Matthew Trick, the Team Vicar for Aberavon and Project Director said:
“The heart of the St Paul’s Centre is about trying to help local people improve the quality of their lives against deprivation - it will tackle deprivation by improving social skills and reducing anti social behaviour.
“We are delighted that the Big Lottery Fund has given us this £500,000. It turns the project from a dream into a reality which will benefit the whole of the community of Aberavon."
