“Great Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Basically liked it all. Living locally everytime we go there we love to see the views. The area has everything you want from superb beaches to great walks lots of places to stay and fantastic food. I would recommend at least a 3 night stay to be able to see most of the Gower - but longer would be better.

“Don't come here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

I like it too much to have crowds pouring in so go somewhere else just think it's horrid! You'd never like it.

“Beautiful Landscape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

We spent the day out in the Gower and you felt it was somewhere far far away from Wales. It is so easy to forget that beautiful areas like the Gower are only down the road.

“Sunny Gower, but bring your walking boots...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Three Cliffs Bay, beautiful beach, but if you park in the National Trust parking, bring your walking boots. At the end of the path you have to descend a very steep hill to reach the beach.
Careful at high tide too.

Sandals and flip-flops, not recommended.

Three Cliffs Bay, hermosa playa, pero si se te ocurre aparcar en el parking del National Trust ponte tus botas de andar. Al final del camnino hay que descender por unos acantilados para alcanzar la playa.
Cuidado con la marea alta.

Poco recomendables las sandalias o chanclas, aunque te estés achicharrando.

“Lovely area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Explored the area in 1 1/2 days and loved Mumbles and Port Eynon. Lovely views and little lanes. South side nice but north side is typically welsh villages/towns with nothing nice.
