Gower is blessed with many sandy beaches, beautiful bays and interesting coves to explore. The South and West coasts of Gower vary between the sandy beaches and dramatic limestone cliffs, whereas the Northern coast of Gower forms part of the tidal Loughor Estuary where many nature reserves can be found. When it comes to beaches, the Gower Peninsula takes some beating. We have so many long sandy beaches or hidden little coves to choose from that we really are spoilt for choice. Some have won national and international awards, such as Rhossili Bay which has been voted amongst the best beaches in the world and the UK’s best picnic spot.
