Wilderness Wales


Hidden Gower

Brandy Cove to Shire Combe

At Caswell the well-trodden path abruptly ends and the coastline suddenly becomes a lot wilder. This next stretch of coast is rarely visited, even by locals. There is a path but it's often faint and rough. The jewel in the crown of this area is Pwlldu Bay, at the end of Bishopston Valley, a very attractive bay sometimes used by nude sunbathers due to its secluded location. From there rise Pennard Cliffs, boasting two large caves below and easy clifftop walking above. This area is frequented more often, but usually by locals rather than tourists. There are no large beaches or tourist facilities on this stretch of coast.
