This handy guidebook offer 30 circular day routes right across the popular holiday destination that is the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, taking in the wide variety of landscapes and ranging from 4km to 22km long. The peninsula is understandably famous for its spectacularly steep, rugged coastline and perfect golden sand beaches but this guide also takes walkers to the inland valleys, hills and ridges little expored by most holidaymakers. Some coastal areas are well frequented, such as those around Langland, Oxwich and Port Eynon but this guidebook concentrates on the areas where walkers can really escape the crowds to find peace and solitude. Along the way, the author provides a wealth of information on plants, animals, geology, history and archaeology of a region with something for everyone all within a compact area easily accessible from Swansea and Mumbles. Routes are illustrated with OS mapping extracts and inspiring photography and accompanied by a route summary table to help you choose your walks to suit your location and ability and useful websites for planning your trip.
