Mumbles Lighthouse

Mumbles Lighthouse is a stone lighthouse standing on the outer islet at Mumbles Head since 1794. Originally a twin platform construction with a coal fired beacon on each, it was designed to alert passing ships of the dangerous Mixon Sands and Cherry Stone Rock – two massive undersea sand banks that have caused the destruction of countless ships and taken the lives of hundreds of seamen over the centuries. Presently, it’s a popular tourist place owing to its scenic beauty. The lighthouse looks beautiful during dusk, and presents an incredible view.

Bracelet Bay Beach is situated on the south of Gower Peninsula. The beautiful Bracelet Bay Beach is just around Mumbles Head. It’s a rocky shoreline. The bay is pebbly, with some sand, and is surrounded by sandstone cliffs. I went there for a picnic with my friends on one my friend’s birthday. It’s excellent for a picnic and provides an amazing view of the Mumbles lighthouse.

Rhossili Bay Beach

Rhossili Bay Beach has three miles of gorgeous sand and coastline. My personal experience on this beautiful beach was spectacular. The beauty of the place touched all of my senses. While standing atop the cliff, I saw the most picturesque view and heard the wind roar. Rhossili Bay also offers adventure sports like surfing, paragliding, trekking, and more, provided one visits in the right season.
