The Gower Peninsula
The Gower Peninsula was designated as the UK’s first ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ in 1956.
Gower has a rich and varied environment – from open moors and dramatic cliffs, to golden sandy beaches.
Rhossili Bay has been voted the best beach in Europe and ninth in the world. The nineteen- mile Gower Peninsular starts at The Mumbles extending westwards and is a favourite destination for walkers and surfers.
Inland you’ll find sheltered woodland and rolling grasslands, country pubs and fine food.
It’s no surprise that Gower is so popular with walkers, it has some of the most beautiful sections of the Wales Coast Path. The Peninsula’s rich and varied environment is renowned for its heathland, grassland, fresh and saltwater marshes, dunes and ancient woodlands.
There’s over 1200 archaeological sites in the area, these include caves, iron age forts, medieval churches and 19th century parks.
The Gower Peninsular needs to be seen to be believed, if you have already visited, you’ll know what we mean.
