Walking In Gower
The Gower / Port Eynon area
Port Eynon, is a village of white washed cottages surrounding a church which, it is believed was founded in the 6th century. There is a fairly quiet sandy beach, which has parking close by, and is patrolled by lifeguards in the summer months. The village has a shop, a public house and a café (open in season) and is steeped in history. During the 19th century Oyster dredging was huge, with many Oyster skiffs working out of the harbour. The visible remains of the harbour can be seen in the sheltered west end of the bay. Established in the 16th Century, the remains of the salt house stands to the far south west of the bay, a valuable commodity in those days.
The cliffs to the west of Port Eynon are witness to numerous shipwrecks during the 18th,19th and early 20th century with associated tales of smuggling and piracy. Along these cliffs just to the west of Port Eynon point lies the mysterious cave of Culver Hole. A cleft in the rock protected by a man made stone wall. Fabled to have a tunnel linking the site with a manor house that once stood on Port Eyon Point..
A 10 minute drive will take you to Rhossili Bay, a wide beach with miles of golden sand. At one end is Burry Holmes, an outcrop of land, with a tiny chapel. Beyond the headland is Broughton Bay which has an abundance of sand dunes. At the other end of Rhossili Bay is the Worms Head which rears out of the sea with its impressive Blow Hole which you can explore at low tide, and up on the cliff top is the village of Rhossili where there are a few shops and cafes with some amazing views over the bay – watch out for the paragliders.
The village of Llangennith is half way along the bay and about a mile inland. There is a campsite and caravan park set back from the beach with parking, a café and facilities – a good base if you want to enjoy the beach and popular with surfers. With only a pub and a surf shop the village of Llangennith remains untouched, but the pub fayre is fairly inexpensive with nice views over the bay complimented by a very tasty Gower Special pizza (cockles and bacon).
Travelling in the opposite direction, Oxwich Bay is the next beach along from Port Eynon (15 by car ) and probably the busiest of the rural beaches on Gower with good facilities. The Oxwich Bay Hotel offers bar meals as well as a restaurant and the beach itself has a water sports club where you can learn to sail or surf, wakeboard or take a doughnut ride - and if you don't feel like driving to Oxwich you could travel by water taxi.
At the other end of Oxwich is Three Cliffs Bay (finalist on TV's 'Britain's favourite view' programme) – one of the most photographed beauty spots on Gower. Here a river meets the sea, sheep graze on the grassy verges overlooking the beach, wild ponies roam freely and the board walk winds its way up to Pennard Castle. There's a lot to absorb in just one snapshot.
Travelling East along the South Gower Road for another 10minutes is Parkmill, where you will find the Gower Heritage Centre with its many attractions for all the family including an 800 year old working water mill. A few yards away are 70 acres of peaceful Parc le Breos where you can take a quiet stroll, hire bikes or enjoy a day out on horseback.
At the centre of the peninsula is the lofty moor land called Cefn Bryn, one of the highest points on Gower, and the burial ground of the legendary King Arthur. From here, on a clear day you can see as far as Devon to the south and the Black Mountains to the North.
The village of Reynoldston is just across the green, home to the King Arthur Hotel where some of the best pub fayre in the area can be found.
If a little more action is your cup of tea, then try the old fishing village of Mumbles (from Port Eynon it's approximately half an hour by car) where there are cafes, and restaurants, gift shops and boutiques in abundance. Make sure you don't leave without enjoying a stroll along the promenade with a Joe's ice cream - the best in area.
