Have a coastal adventure with this day-by-day route around the Gower Peninsula


If you want a beach-packed walk in Wales this is the place to go. It also happens to be one of the easier sections of the Wales Coast Path to access as it’s right on Swansea’s doorstep. Highlights include Three Cliffs Bay and its stepping stones, the sheltered cove of Port Eynon and, of course, Rhossili and Worm’s Head. There’s some variation in the days with the north side of the peninsula mostly low-level walking on the edge of the salt marsh. On the south, you’re either on a cliff top or a beach.
