Location

Whiteford Point LIghthouse and Burrows

    • Whiteford Burrows just North of Llanmadoc is a beautiful natural wild area of sand dunes and woodland owned by the National Trust.
    • At the end of Whiteford Point stands an old cast iron lighthouse, the only one left in the UK. Don't forget to check the tides before you set off to explore.
    • To the West is Whiteford Sands, a vast two mile expanse of beach at the edge of the Loughor Estuary.
    Rhossili Bay
      • Rhossili Bay is a three-mile stretch of white sand with Worm's Head at one end and a small tidal island of Burry Holms on the other. Along the beach is the solitary Old Rectory dating back to the 1850's - now owned by the National Trust. Rhossili Bay has been voted 3rd best UK beach.
      • Eddies Diner will serve you hearty food after your walk.

      Mumbles Village (Mwmbwls in Welsh)

      • This bustling fishing village, situated at the Western end of Swansea Bay at the entrance to Gower Peninsula, was a frequent haunt of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and his friends.
      • Try delicious local ice cream at Joe's Ice Cream Parlour, stock up on gourmet picnic treats at Olives and Oils and fresh local cockles at Coakleys the fishmonger. An open air artisan food market takes place every 1st Saturday of the month. 
      • Peak season sees the "Mumbles Land Train" chugging its way along the sea front to and from Swansea.

      Walkers Paradise

      • Discover Gower's standing stones and ancient burial sites, woodlands teeming with wildlife, open commons and roaming ponies, sheltered beaches and medieval castles and ancient churches.  There are stunning sea views at every turn!

      Gower Coast Adventures - Boat Trips (May to September)

      • Take a boat trip aboard a large RIB (rigid inflatable boat) to explore the Gower coast from Mumbles to Worms Head.  Passengers are picked up and dropped off at Knab Rock, Port Eynon and Oxwich and taken along the coast to spot grey seals, porpoises and dolphins as well as seabirds such as Razorbills and Guillemots (June and July), Gannets and Shearwaters.

      Port Eynon

      • It is a pleasant 7 mile drive to the nearby coastal village and sandy bay of Port Eynon. Here St Cattwgs church is worth a visit; St Cattwg is a Welsh saint, born about 497 AD. The church may have been founded as early as the 6th century.
      • Here there are several cafes, small gift shops, the Smugglers restaurant (pizzas to take away during the summer season) and the dog-friendly Ship Inn, serving honest plentiful food and great ale. 
      • Overlooking Port Eynon Point are the remains of the 16th century Salt House, a scheduled ancient monument, which stand testament to the great value given to salt in years gone by.

      Eating Out
