The area lends itself to a wide variety of activities both water and land based. For the water enthusiast you can try your hand at sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and surfing. If faster action is more your style book water skiing, wakeboarding or view the coastline by sea on a fast sports boat ride. The sheer rock face of the coastline is ideal for climbing and abseiling and if heady heights are not your thing try coasteering and rock hopping.

Fishing is fast becoming one of the nations favourite pastimes and Swansea offers both coastal angling and coarse fishing in lakes and reservoirs. The countryside is ideal for horse riding, rambling and hiking and can be challenging for the discerning cyclist. The undulating, rolling hills play host to some of the best golf courses in Wales and cater for a variety of abilities.

Dylan Thomas

Sometimes the history of bygone poets can seem boring and uninteresting, however if you follow the trails of our local legend Dylan Thomas, his life will come alive in front of your eyes. Dylan Thomas was born in 1913 at 5 Cwmdonkin Drive, Uplands, follow the trail from here to Cwmdonkin Park where he played as a child, to the old Swansea Grammar School and the numerous monuments dedicated to his life. Or take the opportunity to explore Gower following the trail along the beautiful coastline, from the Pier in Mumbles to Caswell Bay, past Hunts Bay to The Garth a former family home, culminating in the breathtaking view of Worms Head which inspired him to write some of his greatest work. 2003 marks the 50th Anniversary of his death and brings with it a diary of exclusive events, which will help to bring his memory alive and inspire the budding artists amongst us.
