Gower was the first site in Britain to be designated an AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY. The 22 mile coastal path winds atop limestone cliffs past secluded coves and long golden beaches to the dramatic terminus of the peninsular at Worm's Head.A shot of Three Cliff Bay recently featured on the front page of the Sunday Times beneath the caption 'Britain's Best View'.
Apart from walking, surfing and cycling, there's pony trekking and kayaking, coasteering, skydiving, water skiing and hang gliding all available for the adventurous.
The more sedate can visit the plethora of castles,hill forts, burial chambers,standing stones and places steeped in Arthurian legend. Gower is a multi-faceted jewel.
