Reviewed September 18, 2013

The peninsular maybe my most favourite part of Wales. It is varied and green plus many outstanding beaches. Rhosilli beach may be the most famous but many of the others are very attractive

This stretch of coastline is definitely among the best coastal scenery I have come across in Britain. Excellent for nature enthusiasts.

“stunning”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

One of the most beautiful areas of the UK with so many bays and beaches plus walks and pubs. From stunning sunsets over Rhossili Bay and worm heads to real ale from local breweries.

“So many beaches, too little time”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Try visiting all the beaches in one summer, impossible. Mumbles is great for an afternoon stroll, loads of castles, just so much to do and most of it freeeeee!!

“Just wonderful”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We have spent a week travelling around the Gower Peninsula and have thoroughly enjoyed the coastal beaches with wide, sweeping panoramic views and lots of space. The views and coastal walks have been great. Local people have been really friendly, chatty and helpful. Would definitely visit again.
