Oxwich Bay

One of Gower's most popular beaches, with good access, plenty of parking, shops and two and half miles of golden sand backed by sand dunes, salt marshes and woodland. Sandy beaches with good swimming and water sports opportunities, dunes to hide behind a nature reserve with elevated walkways and two castles nearby to explore.

 

Rhosilli Bay

Sandy and beautiful, hard to reach but worth it! Tidal Island to explore if you time it right, surfing is popular as is swimming, though there is no lifeguard cover. Recent Award Winner.

 

Saundersfoot

There are several beaches along the bay, each with its own distinctive charm, from the busy and active to the more secluded and sedate. Nice waters for swimming at all, and all sandy. Blue Flag awarded area.

 

Three Cliffs Bay

One of Gower's most picturesque beaches and it's not hard to see why, the valley leading down to the sea complete with castle, the salt marshes and the sand dunes, and the three cliffs themselves. The cliffs are popular with climbers, and what a location, you can actually walk underneath the cliffs through an archway.

 

Pendine Sands

Seven miles of glorious golden sands overlooking the prominent outline of the Gower Peninsular, this vast stretch of sands once echoed to the roar of monster machines driven by the likes of Sir Malcolm Campbell who famously set the World land speed record here in the 1920’s.

Caswell Bay (pictured)

A sandy beach with good access and facilities, a popular destination for both visitors and locals all year round. The beach shops are geared towards young families, and are well stocked with all the essentials for building sand castles. Swimming is safe, and there is a Lifeguard patrol during the summer months.

 

Langland Bay

A sandy beach with rocky outcrops, very popular for swimming, surfing and families, and offers summer lifeguard cover. Holds Blue Flag and Seaside Awards.

 

Burry Port

A stretch of shoreline east of the harbour entrance, which was once an expanse of open mudflats, has been covered in deep golden sand. Popular with surfers and sea canoeists, this beach boasts some of the best surf in the county.

Other places near to Llandeilo include the particularly striking Garn Goch - an Iron Age fort with Bronze Age origins just above the little village of Bethlehem (between Llandeilo and Llangadog). It is impressively located on a hilltop whose presence dominates the surrounding countryside. This choice location at 700 feet above sea level offers visitors not just an opportunity to walk around and explore the remains of the hill fort with its massive stone defences, but to partake of the excellent panorama.

 

The wonderful Heart of Wales railway line, snaking 120 miles from Swansea to Shrewsbury through some of the prettiest countryside you will ever find, passes through Llandeilo and can make a wonderful trip. Whatever your idea of Wales – beaches, mountains, rivers, streams, sheep, castles or coal-mining – you are likely to find it by using this line.
