‘Gower was the first place in Britain to be named an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With cliffs and woodlands ringed by sparkling beaches, the Gower peninsula is so adored by walkers, birdwatchers, sunbathers, and surfers, it’s been scooping awards ever since.’ – Visit Wales
Being situated here in Gower, we love to make the most of our beautiful surroundings. Here are some of our favourite places nearby, they’re all well worth a trip to the next time you visit us at Beach House.
Just a stone’s throw from the restaurant is Oxwich Bay nature reserve. A stunning landscape combining beach, sand dunes, lakes, woodlands, cliffs, and both salt and freshwater marshes. Its coastal beauty and wealth of wildflowers attract numerous wildlife, including butterflies and insects, as well as rich birdlife — welcoming moorhens, little grebes, and ducks.
The restaurant overlooks Three Cliffs Bay. The iconic three limestone cliffs stand tall against the stretch of beach and it’s one of the most scenic and photographed places on the Gower.
Nearby, the views from Rhossili are unparalleled and the beach richly deserves the many accolades it has received, frequently being named in the list of top 10 beaches in the world. You really get the best of the Gower coast path in one go here, looking out to 3 miles of sandy beach, with Gower’s most iconic landmark “Worms Head” in the distance, which will often have basking seals and playful dolphins beneath it.
During breaks in service, you will often see Chef Hywel walking the Oxwich sand dunes with his beloved dog Buckley. Another favourite of the team is a loop of local beaches including Tor Bay, Three Cliffs and Cefn Bryn, taking you to the second-highest point of the Gower.
