ITINERARY

Swansea is an appealing blend of traditional and modern, known as the city by the sea. The old dock has been transformed into a marina, surrounded by stylish waterfront buildings.  Your guide will give a brief overview of the marina before visiting the National Waterfront Museum, tracing the industry and innovations over the past 300 years.  Facilities:  C, T & G 

From Swansea, enjoy views of long stretches of sandy beach at Swansea Bay, quaint villages of Mumbles and Oystermouth before entering the Gower Peninsula. The peninsula has a unique combination of outstanding natural beauty, rugged cliffs, golden sands and coves.

At Langland Bay take a leisurely coastal walk to Caswell Bay with ample time to enjoy the scenery and take photo stops.  Or simply relax and unwind and spend time at Langland and travel by mini-coach to join the rest of the group at Caswell Bay.  Facilites: C, T & G

Rhossili Bay, voted No. 1 UK bay by TripAdvisor. Rhossili is a delightful coastal village which has not changed since the Gower became the first 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' in the UK in the 1950s. The bay has a long expanse of golden sands, and the waters are used all year round by surfers, paddle boarders and swimmers. The coastal path is easy to access and leads to Worm's Head, a dramatic serpent shaped stone causeway. Allow approximately 40 minutes round trip to walk along the coastal path.  Rhossili Downs which has the highest view point in the Gower, 190 metres above sea level is well worth the hike to enjoy excellent views. Your guide will point out all the eating establishments, or bring a packed lunch to maximise your free time at Rhossili Bay. Facilities:  C, T & G

Mid afternoon explore the North region of the Peninsular, one of Wales's most alluring landscapes.  The journey travels through the village of Reynoldston to Cefn Bryn, the second highest viewpoint in the Gower. The area has open moorland where wild ponies, cattle and sheep roam without the restriction of fences.  Your guide will take you on a short walk to Maen Ceti, better known as Arthur's Stone, a tomb dating back to approximately 2500B.C. spectacularly sited on a false crest overlooking the Llwcher Estuary. 

The return journey travels along the lower coastal road to join the motorway to travel east bound to Cardff.
