At the western end of Gower, the village of Rhossili, a gateway for walkers and beach lovers, lies above the dazzling sandy crescent of Rhossili Bay. The terrain west of the village is largely owned by the National Trust, and for most of the year there is a helpful NationalTrust information centre where important information such as tide times can be found. In the church there is a memorial to Petty Officer Evans, who was born here and perished with Scott in the Antarctic in 1912.

360 Beach and Watersports is a unique multisport facility situated at the heart of Swansea Bay, a stunning natural resource that lends itself to both land and water based activity. The Centre opened in September 2012 and offers opportunities for individuals and groups of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to get involved with a range of sports and activities.

Whether you want to try an activity for the very first time, are looking to improve your skills and abilities or are already a fully competent athlete, 360 has something for you. With a fully licensed beachside cafe bar, 360 also offers the perfect location to relax with friends and enjoy stunning panoramic views around the bay – by day and by night.

This website aims to highlight and prom e main features and attractions of Gower and the surrounding area, whilst also giving guidance to visitors, helping them to maximise their enjoyment of South and West Wales .

The castle grounds can only be accessed via pathways from the Norton side of the Castle. Oystermouth Castle is located in a beautiful location on the hill in Mumbles, overlooking Swansea Bay. Oystermouth Castle was used as the residence of the Marcher Lords of Gower, and as such was frequently under attack from the Welsh population. The earliest building is the keep which dates from the early 12th century.

Conservation work
Conservation work is being carried out at the castle to preserve the building for future generations and to improve access. 

The conservation work is supported by the Heritage Lottery FundCadw, the City and County of Swansea and Friends of Oystermouth Castle

Summer Swells on Gower ......................
Surfing Guide to Gower

Gower has some of the best waves in Britain. Over the past 40 years surf culture grown into one of the most popular sports in the area for men and women of all ages. (The point at Langland has been renamed Saga Point) - Remember: 'Old surfers never die, they just drop in on a longboard /paddle board !

The location of Gower and general aspect make it one of the best surf areas in the UK. The fact that it is a peninsula helps and means that there are plenty breaks to choose from depending upon the conditions . The main factors when deciding where to go are 1) Swell size and direction, 2) Wind speed and direction, 3) Tide timetables and height of the tide. LLangennith faces directy out to the atlantic and pics up swell before the other beaches. The prevailing wind direction for Gower is a westerly and this can push up the swell size. As a rough guide, Llangennith needs to be about 4-5ft for Langland and Caswell to get a 2-3ft wave.

Three Cliffs Bay, Gower Peninsula

“I grew up on the edge of the Gower, but it was still a holiday place for our family. We’d go on weekend breaks to Three Cliffs Bay – six miles down the road! That’s how gorgeous it is.....“My auntie kept a little caravan on the clifftops, and I spent long summer days there with my dog, digging out boats in the sand and sitting in them, waiting for the tide to come in. .... “I’m biased, I know, but my view is not just about sentimentality: the bay really is beautiful, with three curious crags of triangular limestone jutting out into the waves, like pyramids. You can walk right underneath them, through a rocky archway to the shore.“There’s a bit of everything: the sea, the cliffs, the salt marshes, a meandering stream curling down to the sea – and Pennard Castle, an 800-year-old fort tucked behind the beach. It’s in picturesque ruins, perfect for mooning about in. Sometimes you even see wild horses cantering along the sands. Talk about romantic. ..... “It may seem a strange thing to say about a beach, but to me Three Cliffs always feels so intimate and cosy. It gives me the feeling of being hugged. I take friends there whenever I’m home, and every time I’m struck by the magic of it again. It still takes my breath away.” ......
