One step closer to Gower coastal path
New section between Llanmadoc and Port Eynon opened.
Walking on the Gower Peninsula
The dream of enjoying an official Gower Coast Path is becoming a reality with the completion of a 16-mile section between Llanmadoc and Port Eynon.
For years, walkers from around the world have been coming to Gower to enjoy the breathtaking views from some of the finest coastal scenery Britain has to offer.
And the first completed section has now been officially opened. The final Gower Coast Path will stretch for almost 40 miles from Mumbles in the South to Crofty in the north via Three Cliffs Bay, Port Eynon, Rhossili and Llanmadoc.
The Gower Coast Path is part of the Welsh Assembly Government's ambition to create a path right around the coast of Wales.
The coast path between Port Eynon and Llanmadoc is about 16 miles long. Work has included replacement of stiles with gates, signposts and waymarking.
There is also a new section between Cwm Ivy Tor and Delvid. This route has been used informally as a footpath for many years but is now an official public footpath with a legal right to walk.
