The village of Llangennith or "Llangenydd" is in West Gower.
The village of Llangennith or “Llangenydd” (meaning Church of St Cenydd) nestles between the slopes of three hills; Llanmadoc Hill, Rhossili Down and Hardingsdown. The latter is the smallest of the red sandstone hills and has a number of iron age earthworks on its slopes.
Llangennith is a popular destination with families and surfers (it even has its own surf shop). Even before surfing became popular, the sea was the focal point of the village, given its setting at the foot of the hills. There must be as many tales involving shipwrecks and smuggling in Llangennith, as exists for their neighbours in Horton and Port Eynon or Brandy Cove, Bishopston.
The church in Llangennith is the largest in Gower and is believed to have evolved from St Cenydd’s Priory, founded in the 6th century and hence giving its name to the village.

Broughton is another enormous sandy beach in North Gower, on the end of the Loughor Estuary. A great place for the dogs to have a long run.
Blue Pool Bay (Bluepool Corner as it is marked on OS map) can only be reached on foot and it lays 1Km West of Broughton.
The beach itself lies at the Western end of Rhossili Bay and is a sandy, sprawling beach backing onto sand dunes. Very popular with surfers.
This 12th century church is on the site of a 6th century llan, or churchyard, which retains the original circular footprint. The floor was raised and the interior subjected to careful Victorian remodelling. In the south wall are the remains of a medieval doorway to the cloisters of the adjoining monastery/priory, and in the rear of the chancel arch is evidence of a rood-stair.
