Port Eynon is a sleepy village for six months of the year, that is until Easter and all the visitors arrive. This popular beach is safe for families, with lifeguard patrols between April and August. It is ideal for water based activities, with a slipway directly onto the beach.

If you want to do one of the most spectacular coastal walks in the country, then head up to Port Eynon Point and follow the cliff-top path, about five miles to Rhossili. You will be rewarded with breathtaking views along the Gower coastline.

Rhossili is the most westerly village in Gower perched atop 200 foot cliffs. What a location though, for walkers there is the challenge of Rhossili Down, and for beach lovers there is the three miles of sand. The Atlantic Ocean pounds waves relentlessly onto the beach.

Imposing Rhossili Down, whose green mass looms over the landscape, this sandstone Down, at 633 feet is the highest point of Gower, is a favourite launching point for hang-gliders. On a clear day there are fine views of Lundy Island, and on a clear evening you can watch the sun set over the ocean.

There is a large car park with shops, hotel, restaurant and tea rooms.
