The Gower has many small towns and of course Swansea City to explore. There are castles, beaches, icecream, lots of walking, plenty of parking which is reasonably priced. Holiday cottages, B&B's, camping and glamping.

From the swansea bay through mumbles and beyond beautiful views out to sea. Good cycle routes and paths.Only thing counting against it is the bay is a bit rocky in parts with the sea out more on the Swansea bay side.

South Gower has excellent beaches. Oxwich is for safe bathing and the more exposed Rossilli Bay is good for surfing.

Thinking about your query again, as it is Bank Holiday I’d strongly advise you to stay as near as possible to the main bus station as all buses to Gower depart from here.
