On the Gower Peninsula was Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. When you see Rhossili Beach you will understand why. The YHA Gower is an ideal base for your group to explore the area’s coves, woods, moorland and castles.
This Victorian house is right next to a sandy beach. We base ourselves here for exploring the local coastal walks as well as few inland beacons. By far the most notable area is Rhossili Bay that stretches for over 4 km and is a haven for surfing, kayaking, coasteering and walks. If the tides are working for us we can even venture across to Worms Head, a rocky tidal peninsular that is only available for a few hours each day when the tide is low.
Port Eynon Bay is a safe, sandy and award-winning beach. It’s also suitable for watersports – swap sand for sea and give one a try. Apparently it was voted the Best British Beach in the 2011 Cadbury Flake 99 Great British Beach Awards.
We base ourselves at Port Eynon for our coasteering and canyoning weekends. Being only 15 minutes drive from the spectacular Rhossili coastline for coasteering and an easy driving route to the canyoning and gorge scrambling sites in the lower Brecons makes this an ideal base.
With easy access to the beach and local pub, whats not to love about this location.
YHA Gower at Borfa House is in the village of Port Eynon close to the sand dunes and beach.
There are 32 beds arranged in rooms each with their own private bathroom. There is one large multi-activity room/TV lounge with a TV and DVD player, also has a dining room which seats 32 people.
With 9 showers and 11 toilets (two fully accessible) there’s a good ratio that shouldn’t keep you waiting long after your salty sea swim – please bring your own towels.
