Explore Swansea Beaches and Coastline

Swansea is Wales' second largest city after the capital Cardiff. Situated on the sandy South West Wales coast, the city is a gateway to the Gower Peninsula and the open moorland of Lliw uplands. The seafront is an 8km (5 mile) promenade from the Swansea Marina to Mumbles and offers many activities with great views across Swansea Bay. Whilst Swansea is a large city, the seaside village of Mumbles has a Victorian pier, small, independent shops and boutiques, restaurants and cafes. The south coast of Gower is the chief magnet for walkers, with a path stretching from Mumbles Head across the cliff tops, beaches and coastal woodland to Rhossili Bay
