Gower and Swansea Bay Coastal Path

The Gower and Swansea Bay Coastal Path is an area of contrast – from the busy seaside city of Swansea to the stunning coastline of the Gower Peninsula with its award winning golden beaches. The area is home to 10 nature reserves, 24 Wildlife Trust reserves, 32 Sites of Special Scientific Interest and five Special Areas of Conservation.

Our walk joins the Gower peninsula close to Gowerton on the north west of the peninsula, and heads west to Burry Holmes before turning south to the beaches of Rhossili Bay. From Rhossili the path passes some of Wales’, and indeed the UK’s finest beaches, Porth Eynon, Oxwich, and Three Cliffs before reaching Caswell Bay and the ever popular Langland Bay.

Rounding the headland, the islets of Mumbles Head herald the wide sweep of Swansea Bay and the contrasting seafront of the ‘City by the Sea’… Swansea.
