Walking and Rambling in Port Eynon


So many walks! Enjoy a nice seven mile walk to Rhossili beach - voted best beach in 2010, walk to Rhossili and Three Cliffs Bay - Katherine Jenkins favourite beach, head out to Worm Island for a delightful tidal walk or if you're going inland, take a walk to Arthur's Stone. For a day of family fun there are five geocaching spots near the hostel. Once you're at Port Eynon, you don't need to drive anywhere until it's time to go home.

Best Walk from the Ramblers: The seven mile circular route to Oxwich. Head east through Oxwich Green to the small village of Oxwich where you'll find a castle and a national nature reserve, plus a beautiful sandy beach - one of the best in Gower. On the return journey take the Wales Coast Path via Oxwich Point and stop off at the 13th century St Illtyd's Church.
If you’re on a mission to cut carbon emissions and would like to explore further afield then visit three beautiful beaches by bus. Walk to Three Cliffs Bay, catch the 118 to Rhossili and then return to Port Eynon in the evening.
