Welcome to Gower

The Gower Peninsula is both beautiful and unspoilt, there are many historic features located over an area that measures just sixteen miles by seven miles wide. Notably, Gower was one of the first places designated 'An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' under the Act of 1949. This website aims to highlight and promote main features and attractions of Gower and the surrounding area, whilst also giving guidance to visitors, helping them to maximise their enjoyment of South and West Wales.

Gower: Hidden Gems - Mewslade Bay

Mewslade Bay is located to the east of Rhossili. There is a farm car park approx half a mile before you reach Rhossili. It is just a 10 minute walk from the farm to the beach. At the farm there is an honesty box for parking and drinks. Fresh seasonal local produce is also available. Access to the beach is via a limestone gully and needs to be approached with caution as the surface is slippery when wet.

Introduction

The Gower is a peninsular that extends west from the City of Swansea for approximately 19 miles. it has a varied landscape, the south coast has beaches and cliff paths whilst the north coast is dominated by salt marshes that lead into the Loughor Estuary. Worms Head is a national icon and Rhossili Bay is one of the most spectacular beaches in Britain if the the world..  Mumbles Head is where the Gower begins. The village of Mumbles is often referred to as the 'Gateway to Gower'.

Langland Bay, Mumbles and Gower Beach Guide.

Gower is a relatively small destination, but is packed packed with both variety and contrast, it has a turbulent history, a very unique geology and so many beaches that offer visitors a truly memorable experience. It is no surprise that the people that live on or close to Gower cherish their surroundings and appreciate that that it is somewhere that is very special and virtually unspoilt. I would argue that one of the reasons that Swansea is known as the ‘Graveyard of ambition’ is because the Gower is such a great place to live and bring up a family. Most people that visit the area will say that they want to return and many do. It is my great pleasure to share with you what I feel are some of the best features.
