Cliffs and Seaside
|Gower Peninsula - Wildlife|
Gower's Carboniferous Limestone Cliffs are amongst the most spectacular in the whole of the UK, particular between Port Eynon and Rhossili where the coastline become progressively more rugged and picturesque. Sheltered beneath these cliffs, or occupying the breaks between them, are an array of beaches ranging from small pebbly coves like Limeslade to huge expanses of Sandy Bay like Oxwich and Whiteford.
Oystercatcher, Bar-tailed Godwit, Sanderling, Ringed Plover, Dunlin, Redshank, Ruddy Turnstone, Cormorant, Mediterranean Gull, Shag, Guillemot, Razorbill, Kittiwake, Fulmar, Puffin and Gannet number amongst the birds likely to be encountered around Gower's southern coastline. There are also several R.I.B. operators, such as Coastal Rib Tours, offering guided boat trips along Gower's coast which allow for closer wildlife encounters with the aforementioned birds and also the Atlantic Grey Seal and Harbour Porpoise. Hermit Crabs can often be seen by the horde along the tide line at Rhossili and Llangennith Bays at sunset and Three Cliffs Bay often has washed ashore jelly fish of quite substantial size for the curious to gaze at. Caswell and Oxwich Bays are probaly the best for those wanting to spot starfish while Rhossili (on the causeway to Worm's Head) is the perfect spot for rockpooling.
