The South Wales 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
To the Southeast of Swansea's city centre lies the award winning Maritime Quarter. At its heart is a marina surrounded by restaurants, shops and marine businesses. Swansea Marina is one of a handful in the UK to hold the coveted Yacht Harbour Association 5 Gold Anchor award. Five is the highest number of anchors awarded indicating the exceptional facilities available to sailors at the marina. This is the perfect location for those wishing to get out onto the water. There are a number of charter companies in operation providing sailing opportunities for all abilities. Sea fishing trips are also available and there is a BSAC diving school. Swansea Watersports are based in the quarter offering a wide variety of water based activities, from Dinghy sailing to jet skis. Swansea's first cable Wake Boarding centre can also be found at the Prince of Wales dock. Other attractions on your doorstep include the LC water park, National Waterfront Centre, Dylan Thomas Centre and Swansea Museum. It is a short walk from the Maritime Quartes to Swansea City Centre with its shops, pubs, theatres, cinemas, restaurants and sporting facilities.The Maritime Quarter is also connected to the beach. It is here that the sweep of Swansea Bay begins with golden sand and a promenade running its entire length to the popular village of Mumbles which is only five miles away at the other end of the bay. Swansea Bay Promenade is a great place to walk or cycle on a sunny day. A variety of water sports can often be seen in the bay and its a great place to watch the experts Kite Surfing.

"Luxury apartment with superb views"
We were absolutely delighted to have chosen Meridian Tower for our stay in Swansea. We had a two-bedroom luxury apartment on the 11th floor, with magnificent views over the marina and the nearby beach. It was magical. The apartment was tastefully decorated with a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. As well as a family bathroom, one of the bedrooms had an ensuite. The apartment was warm and peaceful and provided an ideal base for exploring the delights of Swansea. The building is also very secure. All amenities, including the main shopping centre and the central bus station, are within walking distance. In addition, there is a restaurant on the top floor of Meridian Tower for those who don't want to cook. Underground car parking is provided in a building just across the street. Everything we needed was there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return some day.
Thank you for your superb review on the Meridian Tower Apartment!
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us in Swansea.
We hope to see you again soon!

"A room with a view"
Fantastic flat, a good size for four people, clean, well equipped, quiet and comfortable. The view was amazing one side the sea and the other the marina. Plenty of nice flat walks, easy to get to the town centre, the sport centre and the theatre as well as several restaurants. Easy access to the Gower and the Black mountains by car.
Thank you for your lovely review on The Meridian Tower.
I must agree with you, the views from the apartment are amazing!
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon!
