The Gower Peninsula beaches are amongst the best in the world. Take a look at our stunning, sandy beaches and pebbly coves.
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.
There are several of Gower’s beaches that have a dog ban imposed from May 1st to September 30th each year. The beaches affected are as follows:
Swansea Bay – from the River Tawe to the slip opposite Swansea Baths and from the beach access Sketty Lane to the Northern edge of the slip opposite the West Cross Inn. Bracelet Bay and Limeslade Bay, Rotherslade Bay and Langland Bay, Caswell Bay, Port Eynon Beach – from Port Eynon to the lifeboat station at Horton.
Several of Gower’s beaches have lifeguard patrols during the Summer months. For up to date information please visit: swansea.gov.uk/beachwatersafety

Rhossili Bay was voted the best beach in the UK in June 2010. Since then it has received accolade upon accolade, including best beach in Europe and within the top 10 best beaches in the world. Why not come and judge for yourself?
Butterslade is a small, rocky inlet to the East of Thurba Head.
Fall bay is one of the hardest to reach bays on Gower, however the walk is well worth it and the beach is never crowded due to its remoteness.
Mewslade bay is one of the prettiest bays on Gower. The short walk to the beach, leads down a wooded path and then through the valley which is owned by the National Trust.
Ramsgrove is a very rocky little cove. Approached through a steep high sided, limestone valley.
