Top 5 Gower Beaches


Top 5 beaches in the Gower
Llangennith is the surfing capital of The Gower, mainly due to the consistent swells that pour in from the mighty Atlantic Ocean, and is situated at the northern end of Rhossili Bay. The bay stretches for over three miles, here you can witness the power of the sea pounding onto the shore, wandering along the water's edge. If you have never tried surfing this is the place to give it a go, there are several surfing schools providing lessons during the summer. The beach is backed by magnificent sand dunes at the north end there is the island of Burry Holms. WARNING: There is no Lifeguard patrol on this beach, do not swim in big surf as there are strong undertows. Before you walk out onto Burry Holms please check the tide times carefully and allow enough time to get back.

Three Cliff Bay is one of the most photographed areas of Gower and is also commonly known as Three Cliffs. Three Cliffs is breathtaking. Frequented by horses and their riders who enjoy a good gallop on the beach. Three Cliffs itself is a common feature that many climbers head for too. It offers spectacular views but they are not for the feint hearted. Walk up and down steep sand dunes from Pennard and Penmaen, or through the valley bottom from Parkmill. When the tide is in, it becomes impossible to cross the river heading towards Parkmill, so if you can't climb the sand dunes, take care not to get cut off as the tide sometimes comes in around the sides of the beach and leaves a sandy island in the middle - but not for long.

Caswell is a sandy beach with good access and facilities, a popular destination for both visitors and locals all year round. The beach is close to Mumbles, The beach shops are tailored for young families, and are well stocked with all the essentials for building sand castles.

Port Eynon Bay is a popular for all types of watersports including, diving, sailing, surfing and windsurfing, with a slipway to the beach. It has good access, plenty of parking, shops and three quarter's of a mile of golden sand backed by sand dunes.

Rhossili Bay is the most westerly bay on the Gower and faces head on into Atlantic swells making it the most consistent surfing beach on Gower, with the biggest waves at the north end at Llangennith.
