Gower Peninsula

Below are a few photos from our time in Gower

The Gower Peninsula is a beautiful area of Wales.

We decided to visit the Gower Peninsula during the August bank holiday weekend after seeing a programme about it on TV. The 19 mile-long Peninsula starts at The Mumbles and extends westwards. It was one of the first places designated ‘An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ back in 1956 and once visited you can see why; long unspoiled beaches, dramatic high cliffs, stunning rugged scenery and caves including Paviland Cave where a fairly complete Upper Paleolithic-era human male skeleton dyed in red ochre was discovered in 1823. At about 33,000 years old it is one of the oldest burials of a modern human discovered anywhere within Western Europe.

The Three Cliffs Bay is one of many beautiful beaches within the peninsula including Rhossili which has recently been voted one of the best beaches in the world and Llangennith beach which is over 3 miles long.

For such a small area there is no end of photo opportunities no matter where you end up in Gower.
