Walking from Oxwich Bay

The Gower Peninsular is a perfect place for walking with many different options available.

From Oxwich Bay, one of our favourites is the Bay itself.  At low tide you can walk all the way from one end to the other (around 8K there and back).  Dogs are allowed on the beach, but on leads when there are lots of people around.  At high tide, the beach stops at Three Cliffs Bay and you cannot walk around the headland (don't be tempted to swim round, there are rocks all around!).  At this point you can turn inland and walk over the sand dunes into the National Reserve area.  

Another great walk from Woodside, is past the Hotel and Church and up to the headland that guards the western tip of the Bay.  In no time at all you will have the cobwebs blown from away and you will be on the coastal path.

The Gower Coastal Path (39 miles long from Crofy to The Mubles) will show you the full beauty of the peninsula, it will take you roughly 5 days to complete but will enable you to tick off a visit to all 20 beaches and coves en route. The Coastal Path forms part of the much much longer Wales Coastal Path and is well signposted.  

But, it's not all about the sea.  Walking inland and climbing Cefn Bryn affords you fantastic views in all directions and is well worth it - you might also get to meet some of the local animals that roam free.

However you choose to spend your time on Gower, you won't be disappointed, and I am sure we can advise of walks that 'happen' to always have a pub en route (just email us).
