The Gower Peninsula was the first place in Britain to be designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here you'll find breath-taking landscapes from golden sandy beaches to dramatic cliffs and mature woodlands. Here you'll find something for everyone. You can enjoy miles of sandy beaches including Rhossili Bay which has won many awards including the best beach in Europe! And it doesn’t stop there - there's also the family friendly Blue Flag beaches of Caswell and Langland (where you can also enjoy a spot of surfing) and the less well known beaches of Pobbles Bay and Blue Pool Bay with its natural plunge pool.
There's also plenty to do inland including horse riding through moorland, rock climbing and abseiling on the sea cliffs, mountain biking along Cefn Bryn where you can take in the legendary Arthur's Stone or just walking the stunning Wales Coast Path which snakes along the coast and meanders through lush woodland.
If it's culture you are looking for, there are numerous local castles to visit, galleries, museums and the Grand Theatre in Swansea. Nature lovers can explore the Rain Forest of Plantasia, discover the magical Penllergare Valley Woods with its beautiful waterfalls and take in the botanical delights of Clyne Gardens. Whatever your passion, you're sure to fall in love with this area of Wales.
