Top 10 Walks - Wales Coast Path: Carmarthen Bay & Gower

£ 5.99

This handy, pocket size book will take you on the ten best short circular walks along the Carmarthen Bay and Gower stretch of the Wales Coast Path.

Carmarthen Bay embraces an area of Welsh coast stretching from south Pembrokeshire to the Gower Peninsula. Long, sandy beaches and wide, silty estuaries dominate much of the bay, though there are also high cliffs and rocky coves in places.

The Gower Peninsula, at the eastern end of the bay, is a small but priceless gem. Britain’s first official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the peninsula contains an astonishing variety of landscapes: dunes, marshland, high cliffs, windswept downs, wooded valleys, picturesque villages and glorious sandy beaches — all linked by a superb footpath network.

One of a series of books in the new Top 10 Walks: Wales Coast Path series. Handy, pocket-sized, full colour walking guides written by experts. Each volume outlines the most popular circular walks along key sections of the Wales Coast Path. Other titles in the series include Pembrokeshire North and South Wales Coast.
