Oxwich Bay on the Gower Peninsula, Wales.

We've just returned from the fantastic Oxwich Bay. Where? I hear you say! It's one of the lesser known beaches on the Gower Coast and we absolutely loved it! We stayed in a fabulous motor home (http://motorhomeitnow.co.uk) which allowed us to cruise around the Gower Coast at our leisure, and finding this little gem of a beach was so exciting! With glorious sunrises over the Bristol Channel you get to watch the sun move across the beach throughout the day and then it sets over the nature reserve, which you'll find directly behind the sand dunes. All kinds of birds are found here and so if bird watching is something you enjoy you won't be disappointed.

We parked our motorhome on the beach front and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this stunning beach from sunrise to sunset where the soft evening sun washed over the golden sands of the bay. We can't recommend this beach and location highly enough, and with a fab campsite in the quaint village of Oxwich it's only a few minutes walk or drive, where you still have views of the cliffs and sea.

Oxwich Bay - to the right is a beautiful nature reserve which overlooks the beach.

For those who enjoy walking, the coastal footpaths are excellent and connect the scattered bays along the Gower Peninsula to make up a stunning outdoor adventure along the coastline, and there’s even a bus service to get you home again if you walk too far!

For a small village, Oxwich is well catered for with a hotel, a small beach front restaurant, a general store and a fantastic, family run campsite which made us very welcome! We highly recommend Oxwich to you as a little gem of a beach for families in search of some sand and walkers of all abilities - it really is that good!
