OYSTERMOUTH CASTLE:
The castle grounds can only be accessed via pathways from the Norton side of the Castle. Oystermouth Castle is located in a beautiful location on the hill in Mumbles, overlooking Swansea Bay. Oystermouth Castle was used as the residence of the Marcher Lords of Gower, and as such was frequently under attack from the Welsh population. The earliest building is the keep which dates from the early 12th century.

Conservation work
Conservation work is being carried out at the castle to preserve the building for future generations and to improve access. 

The conservation work is supported by the Heritage Lottery FundCadw, the City and County of Swansea and Friends of Oystermouth Castle

Surfing Guide to Gower

Gower has some of the best waves in Britain. Over the past 40 years surf culture grown into one of the most popular sports in the area for men and women of all ages. (The point at Langland has been renamed Saga Point) - Remember: 'Old surfers never die, they just drop in on a longboard /paddle board !

The location of Gower and general aspect make it one of the best surf areas in the UK. The fact that it is a peninsula helps and means that there are plenty breaks to choose from depending upon the conditions . The main factors when deciding where to go are 1) Swell size and direction, 2) Wind speed and direction, 3) Tide timetables and height of the tide. LLangennith faces directy out to the atlantic and pics up swell before the other beaches. The prevailing wind direction for Gower is a westerly and this can push up the swell size. As a rough guide, Llangennith needs to be about 4-5ft for Langland and Caswell to get a 2-3ft wave.

SUNDAY TIMES: KATHERINE JENKINS:
Three Cliffs Bay, Gower Peninsula

“I grew up on the edge of the Gower, but it was still a holiday place for our family. We’d go on weekend breaks to Three Cliffs Bay – six miles down the road! That’s how gorgeous it is.....“My auntie kept a little caravan on the clifftops, and I spent long summer days there with my dog, digging out boats in the sand and sitting in them, waiting for the tide to come in. .... “I’m biased, I know, but my view is not just about sentimentality: the bay really is beautiful, with three curious crags of triangular limestone jutting out into the waves, like pyramids. You can walk right underneath them, through a rocky archway to the shore.“There’s a bit of everything: the sea, the cliffs, the salt marshes, a meandering stream curling down to the sea – and Pennard Castle, an 800-year-old fort tucked behind the beach. It’s in picturesque ruins, perfect for mooning about in. Sometimes you even see wild horses cantering along the sands. Talk about romantic. ..... “It may seem a strange thing to say about a beach, but to me Three Cliffs always feels so intimate and cosy. It gives me the feeling of being hugged. I take friends there whenever I’m home, and every time I’m struck by the magic of it again. It still takes my breath away.” ......
