Never get tired of it.

I've lived in Swansea all my life and still visit these beaches as much as I possibly can. Bring a packed lunch, it's more fun that way.

Returned after 30+ years, roads still as narrow but still a lovely area, went to Port Eynon, its changed a bit but still nice to visit, lovely beach and plenty of places to check out the rock pools

Great week exploring the Gower's spectacular beaches and coastal paths. Slade Bay (along the coastal path from Horton ) is well worth the scramble over the rocks . Rhossili Bay and Three Cliffs Bay simply stunning. Take a picnic to refresh before the steep paths home!

I am lucky enough to live in Swansea which is just on the edge of the Gower. Stunning beaches. Idyllic views and lots of country walks. Some of the best beaches include Oxwich Bay. Port Eynon and in my opinion the most beautiful Rhossili. Perfect for surfing sunbathing and swimming on a lovely summer day. If you don't like the... More

This is one of the most natural beautiful places in Wales with the sandy beaches and wild life and scenic views across the bays and the Bristol Channel.

The sea has always attracted me, but when there are hills by the beach, it becomes all the more interesting. The drive through the common grazing lands is unforgettable.

What a beautiful place to visit. If like me you are fairly local and can get there easily you are so lucky. If not it is well worth a visit whatever the season. I tend to visit more in the winter when it is quieter and can enjoy the beautiful beaches and footpaths. There are fabulous walks and loads of... More
