Walking in Swansea Bay
Walking in Swansea Bay, Mumbles, the Gower Peninsula and Afan and the Vale of Neath (south-west Wales, UK)
Coastal Walking in Swansea Bay, Mumbles and Gower
The Wales Coast Path is now open, giving walkers a chance to explore any part of coastal Wales.
One of the highlights is the Gower and Swansea Bay section, aka the Gower Coast Path, which stretches from SA1 Waterfront to Gower and Loughor in the West. Download the leaflet on the right hand side!
With nearly 400 miles' worth of rights of way, the Swansea Bay, Mumbles and Gower offer many memorable walking routes, from short family trips, taking in many of the small churches and landmarks in the area, to routes for the more experienced, with breathtaking views of the Gower Peninsula.
In fact, "glorious" Rhossili, on the westernmost point of Gower, is one of the Telegraph's 'Top 10 British Walks' and The Times' '20 Greatest Rural British Walks'.
And of course it's not just about the coast: inland, Gower is an astonishingly varied landscape, teeming with flora and fauna you won't want to miss. Try the Gower Way for a challenging trek across the Peninsula. Or head to the green 'Waterfall Country' of the Vale of Neath, just east of Swansea, to find completely different scenery.
