Gower Peninsula & Swansea
Group holidays, short breaks and fun outdoor activities in the Gower Peninsula & Swansea
Looking for an active short break that offers consistent surf, a breathtaking coasteering location and a rugged coastline perfect for rock-climbing and exploring? The Gower Peninsula in South Wales offers all that and more. It’s the first place in the UK designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty! The Gower is known for its amazing beaches, such as Three Cliffs Bay & Rhossili Bay, its cute little villages, as well as being a hot-spot for outdoor activities. Swansea is becoming a more popular destination with The Mumbles having a nice selection of pubs overlooking the seaside, Uplands being popular for quirky bars and the modern Marina area offering some delicous places to eat. Another reason to visit Gower is that it’s in easy reach of the M4 motorway, making it a relatively short drive coming from London and a handy location across the UK.

Why We Love This…
“When I moved to Wales I quickly discovered that the south is blessed with incredible natural beauty. My favourite beach Rhossili Bay has even been voted as one of the top beaches in the world! I love going for a surf in the Gower, ending the day with a tasty meal from The LookOut and a magical sunset over Wormshead.”
