Whether you are looking for somewhere you can relax in a tranquil environment or have an exhilarating activity holiday in a spectacular setting, Swansea Bay has it all!
The Area is really many destinations rolled into one - the colourful maritime city of Swansea, the pretty Victorian resort of Mumbles and the spectacular Gower Peninsula.
Swansea, "Wales' city by the sea", lies in an unique and desirable position on the edge of a 5-mile sandy bay. The City offers beautiful parks and gardens, enviable cultural and sporting facilities as well as excellent shopping opportunities. Home to the largest indoor market in Wales, a vibrant Marina and the state-of-the-art National Pool, it is also renowned for its entertainment and nightlife - Wind Street, with its cafes, pubs and restaurants in stylishly and sensitively refurbished buildings, is the place to be seen!
Swansea has a fabulous range of attractions and activities to suit everyone - whatever the weather! Visit one of the many museums and galleries, the themed pool at Swansea Leisure Centre (one of Wales' top leisure attractions), award winning gardens and parklands with national collections, blue flag beaches, the beachfront Lido at Blackpill (with interactive play equipment), the Grand Theatre (one of the best theatres in the Principality!)
If watersports are your passion, then look no further Swansea Bay offers everything from sedate 'swan' pedalo rides at Singleton Park to Dylan Thomas cruises around Gower and national surfing championships on Gower. Learn to sail, surf or go coasteering… Get wet, get active!
A few miles away from Swansea lies the Victorian resort of Mumbles, a delightful village steeped in fishing history and boasting some stunning sea views, a restored Pier and fabulous ice creams parlours! Mumbles is connected to Swansea by a popular, 5-mile promenade which will delight both walkers and cyclists. In summer months, why not hop onto the traditional Swansea Bay Rider for a memorable ride along the seafront!
Mumbles is often referred to as 'the Gateway to Gower', Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peninsula offers some of the best surfing beaches in the UK in breath-taking settings. Each year the area receives an array of beach awards in recognition of its excellent water quality and high standards of beach management and facilities. From vast, accessible bays to picture-postcard secluded coves, Gower is the ultimate beach destination! Population 227,000
