About this location
The Vale of Glamorgan region
The Gower offers a dramatic and varied landscape. The numerous beautiful bays of golden sand and secluded coves are linked by a coastal path allowing you to explore the entire coast of the peninsular. Sandy beaches backed by dunes and dramatic limestone cliffs are found on South and West Gower. To the North of the peninsular the landscape changes to salt marshes and there are many nature reserves providing a bird watcher's paradise.
Often compared to the Bay of Naples, Swansea Bay is a five mile sweep of golden sand linking the Swansea Maritime Quarter and Mumbles Head. A beautiful panorama of sea and water. Running the length of the bay is a promenade ideal for a stroll or cycle ride. If you aren’t feeling energetic a trip on the Swansea Bay Rider might be just the ticket. The Swansea Bay Rider is a land train which runs between Southend Gardens in Mumbles and Blackpill Lido on bank holiday weekends in May and throughout the Summer.
Close to Mumbles are the popular beaches of Langland and Caswell Bay, The Blue Flag Beach of Langland is very accessible, with ramps at both ends of the bay allowing pushchairs onto the beach. A beautiful curving bay with Victorian beach huts and palm trees. There's ample parking and three eateries, one an upmarket licensed Brasserie and two beach side cafes with everything from bacon sandwiches to buckets and spades. This is a popular surfers venue with a designated swimmers area and life guards on duty. There are rock pools galore for the children and lovely golden sand.
Caswell is a beautiful Blue Flag beach with a large car park and its own beachside cafe as well as a snack bar and beach shop. There is a life guard in attendance during the summer months and a surf school in operation. Out of season this beach becomes a surfers paradise.
Travelling further onto the Gower Peninsula the stunning secluded bay of Three Cliffs is one of the most photographed locations on Gower and was recently featured on the television programme Britain's Favourite View. Wonderful golden sands backed on one side by high dunes which are perfect for sunbathing.
In 2007 The Travel Magazine named Oxwich beach the most beautiful in Britain, describing it as "magnificent and unspoilt" and as a "great place for adults and children to explore". There is a wide range of habitats with the beach backed by salt marshes, woodland and sand dunes. Oxwich is a wonderful beach for swimming and water sports. Its position facing South East means that the water is particularly calm and perfectly suited for windsurfing, kayaking, waterskiing and power boating, all of which is on offer on this popular beach. There is car parking directly behind the western end of the beach and this along with toilets and a kiosk means it is a very accessible and convenient beach.
The last city before rural Wales, Swansea, boasts an Olympic swimming pool, The National Waterfront Museum and the Museum of Transport. Let us not forget the Grand Theatre, the LC2 water park, a Casino and two multi-screen cinemas. There are several festivals including ‘Escape to the Park‘ a dance music event held in Singleton Park, this venue also hosts the BBC Proms in the Park . The ever growing Swansea Bay Summer festival runs throughout the summer with live music, theater, children’s entertainment and sports events. Many events are free but it is worth remembering to book in advance for the international artists who perform in the festival.
Wales' second city Swansea nestles around the crescent shaped Swansea bay with its miles of golden sand.
The restoration of Wind street, (pronounced Wine), hints of the past wealth of the city with its beautiful buildings transformed from banks into bars and restaurants. This street has become world famous as a party venue.
The Maritime Quarter, an internationally awarded architectural project, combines the beautiful architecture of the waterfront which survived the German bombs with a new marina development including galleries, museums cafes and bars. The development, which was praised by Prince Charles for its sympathetic architecture has greatly enhanced the city and strengthened it’s links with the waterfront.
There are many beautiful places to see within the environs of the city. The Vivian family, who accumulated great wealth through copper smelting in the 19th century, spent a good deal of that money developing the grounds of their estates; notably Clyne Castle and Singleton Abbey. These properties and their gardens and parklands were subsequently acquired by the city of Swansea. Clyne Gardens is extremely beautiful with many rare Azaleas and Rhododendrons as well as ancient trees . Singleton Park houses a stunning walled Botanical Garden surrounded by beautifully landscaped parklands sloping gently towards the sea. Swansea’s position on the edge of the Gower means it is perfectly placed as a tourist destination.
Caswell has a beautiful Blue Flag beach with a large car park and its own beachside restaurant as well as a snack bar and beach shop. There is a lifeguard in attendance during the summer months and GSD surf school in operation. Out of season this beach becomes a surfer's paradise.
Cross the little stream which divides the beach and you are in a lovely cove surrounded by rocks. Don't worry about being being cut off as the tide comes in as there is a second path that leads back to the road. To your left, as you approach the bay at low tide, is a vast expanse of sand bordered by rocks. A cliff path which runs up behind the cafe and around the headland connects Langland and Caswell Bay - In local legend Caswell is called ‘the big boys side’. The coastal path also runs around the headland on the right hand side of the beach towards the beaches of Brandy Cove and Pwll du, but it is easier to pick up this path from the road which runs through the trees on the cliff behind the beach. Caswell is a busy beach in summer but there is plenty of room for all.
Inland from the beach there is Bishop’s Wood Nature Reserve with lovely woods where you roam through mature trees. The semi-natural woodland is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and contains a wide range of shrubs and plants. Part of the wood is also classified as ancient woodland.
Close by is Mumbles Village - the village at the gateway to the Gower. What was a fishing village with a Norman Castle is now a vibrant centre with restaurants, cafes, bars and boutique shops. A good base for your holiday with all these amenities, beaches within easy walking distance and the isolated beaches of the Gower a short distance away. Escape to Rhossili beach in twenty minutes, and return to Mumbles for a wonderful evening out without worrying about having to drive.
On offer is also an amusement arcade, skating rink, parks with children's play areas and even a friday night film show in the local hall. During the summer holidays there is also children’s activities in the park provided free of charge by the local authority.
If you want a change of scene there is the land train which connects Mumbles to the Blackpill Lido, paddling and play areas for the children and then on into Swansea for shopping, all around the sweep of the beautiful Swansea Bay.
The beaches closest to Mumbles are Limeslade and Bracelet Bay. The former has ample parking, a cafe and Italian restaurant with spectacular views over the bay. The latter an old fashioned style ice cream parlor and cafe.
Further along the cliff path are Rotherslade and Langland which are the most popular beaches in the area. There is ample parking and a number of child friendly cafes. The Langland Brasserie is located next the beach and is also open for evening meals in a truly fantastic setting.
Leave your cares behind and your car if you wish and experience the laid back approach to life in ‘shorts’ infested Mumbles.
