From the long golden sandy beach at Rhossili the Peninsula stretches out to the west, eventually reaching the peaceful bay at Pwll Du. The Peninsula is adored by walkers, bird lovers and, of course, surfers, with miles of golden beaches to choose from.

Holiday visitors to The Gower can choose from over a dozen beautiful beaches.

The Gower Beaches also bristle with Green Coast and Blue Flag Awards in recognition of their cleanliness, water quality and beach services.
