Gower Coast Path

74 km / 46 miles

From the Loughor river which marks the Western boundary of Glamorgan this route takes you round the coast of the Gower peninsular. You can either carry on along the Glamorgan coast (Swansea to Porthcawl section to follow) or take the Millennium Cycleway back to Gowerton where there is a train station or Loughor where you started. This is not yet an official coast path but the route is on public rights of way. Most of the way is level but there are some minor scrambles between Rhossili and Port Eynon.

On the way you will pass castles, some of the best beaches in Britain, dramatic cliffs, old parish churches, famous caves with prehistoric links and wildlife in abundance.
