What better way to spend Father’s Day than enjoying some quality time together? Here are some ideas to help plan the perfect Father’s Day with your dad in Swansea Bay, Mumbles and Gower…
For something slightly slower paced, get down to the Wales National Pool for a swim – or a race to see who the fastest swimmer is… but maybe you should let him win this once, it is Father’s Day after all!
Treat dad to a few rounds of golf at the ‘links in the sky’ AKA Pennard Golf Club. At 200 feet above sea level, breath-taking views are a given. Or head to the only PGA Championship status golf course in Swansea – Fairwood Park Golf Club!
How about a Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea beside the Sea with a FREE pint of Gower Gold or Carling for all dads! (tea, coffee or soft drink of choice if preferred)? Head to The Oxwich Bay Hotel between 2:30pm-5:30pm. But don’t forget to pre book!
A father’s day stroll (or hike!) maybe just what your dad fancies – explore the 39 mile long Wales Coast Path or head for Rhossili National Trust Shop and enjoy spectacular views over the award winning Rhossili Bay.
Take your dad around the beautiful Gower Coast by boat with Gower Coast Adventures and learn all about the local marine wildlife and fascinating local history – from prehistoric bone caves to tales of smugglers!
Does your dad have a thirst for knowledge? Take a trip along the River Tawe with Swansea Community Boat Trust to learn more about the remains of ‘Copperopolis’, the heart of industrial Swansea, which was once the centre of worldwide copper production.
Learn how to prepare for adventures, build shelters, create fire without matches and find food and water with Dryad Bushcraft. They even run a Family Bushcraft Camp where Dad can learn how to use an Axe while the kids build a hoop shelter, and Mum can take a well-earned break. Sound good?
So, don’t panic about last minute shopping, struggling to find that perfect book/pair of socks/novelty beer – spend some quality time with your dad this Father’s Day and create memories that will last a lifetime!
