Exploring the Gower

One of the great things about a long weekend in the Gower is that there are plenty of beaches and coves to explore, either by foot, van or paddleboard. So we did a little bit of all three.

We walked across the headland to Overton Mere. It’s a beautiful nature reserve with plenty of opportunity for long walks and lots to discover.

But for us, we wanted to get do some exploring on our paddleboards, and get the view from the water. So we set off on a trip by water towards to Horton beaches from Port Eynon. It was a beautiful day with glorious sunshine, and the excursion was just perfect.

Our little vdub dog comes with us on the paddleboards, and as we got to the Sands, which was completely deserted, she loved running around the beach. She loves all beaches anyway so for her this was the best thing ever. After a spot of sunbathing, we decided to do some more paddling before heading back to Port Eynon.

We also did some exploring with the van, and visited the very impressive Rhossili beach and Worm’s head.

On our way back home, we stopped at Oxwich and Three Cliffs before heading back home.

Port Eynon stole a piece of our hearts, and we will surely be back. We loved the campsite, met lovely people, had a fun afternoon in the pub, became short-term regulars at the Beach Shack (surf & coffee shop) and I just can’t wait to go back!
