Season: autumn

Oxwich is one of the best known beaches on the Gower Peninsula. Accessed via the nearby village of Oxwich, the setting features 2.5 miles of sandy beach, dunes and woodland.  The beach and the bay have an expansive feel and visitors flock here in the summer.  A cafe at the western end of the beach offers drinks and snacks.  Behind the beach lies Oxwich Nature Reserve, an area of salt and freshwater marshes, oak and ash woodlands and dunes.  It’s home to a variety of bird life and dune plants.

    What I love about the beach – Sitting with my eyes closed and just being. The waves breaking in a timeless rhythm; children laughing; the tang of salt on the breeze; the sun on my face and sand between my toes. Bliss!
