Going to the Beach.. UK top 10 beaches #1

The Gower Peninsula in South Wales was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1956. It was the first place to be assigned this title in the UK. As a result, the Gower Peninsula is a very popular holiday destination and attracts a large number of visitors every year. They come from all over the world for beach and walking holidays and also the fabulous water-sports.

Three Cliff Bay is one of the most photographed areas of Gower and is also commonly known as Three Cliffs. Three Cliffs is breathtaking. Frequented by horses and their riders who enjoy a good gallop on the beach. Three Cliff itself is a common feature that many climbers head for too. Spectacular views but not for the feint hearted. Walks up and down steep sand dunes from Pennard and Penmaen, or through the valley bottom from Parkmill. When the tide is in, it becomes impossible to cross the river heading towards Parkmill, so if you can’t climb the sand dunes, take care not to get cut off as the tide sometimes comes in around the sides of the beach and leaves a sandy island in the middle – but not for long.

If you are looking for a great holiday in the Gowler Peninsular then you could go ‘self-catering’ and try one of the country cottages with ‘Gower Holidays’ (Email: gowerholidays@btinternet.com)
