As well as the dramatic, sandy five mile stretch of beach at Swansea Bay, the outstanding beauty of the Gower Peninsula is right on its doorstep.
Exploring Wales in the Car
Heading inland from Swansea in the car, a scenic 20 mile drive will bring you to the foothills of the spectacular Brecon Beacons National Park, where you will discover South Wales' highest mountain, Pen y Fan.
Meanwhile heading 60 miles inland and across to the west from Swansea will bring you to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which is renowned for its rugged and spectacular coastlines.
Exploring the West of England in the Car
And don’t forget, it’s just an 80 mile drive along the M4 in the car to beautiful city of Bristol, which in turn is the gateway to the West Country of England and the beautiful counties of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
