By foot or on two wheels are amongst the best ways to get to know Swansea Bay. Coast and country are at your fingertips (or toe-tips depending on which way you look at it) and here are some great ways to get exploring! With nearly 400 miles’ worth of rights of way, Swansea Bay offers many memorable walking routes, from short family trips, taking in many of the small churches and landmarks in the area, to routes for the more experienced, with breathtaking views of the Gower Peninsula.
In fact, “glorious” Rhossili, on the westernmost point of Gower, is one of the Telegraphs ‘Top 10 British Walks’ and The Times’ ’20 Greatest Rural British Walks’. And of course it’s not just about the coast: inland, Gower is an astonishingly varied landscape, teeming with flora and fauna you won’t want to miss. Try The Gower Way for a challenging trek across the Peninsula. Or head to the green ‘Waterfall Country’ of the Vale of Neath, just east of Swansea, to find completely different scenery.
