The Mumbles, City of Swansea
Mumbles is a village and seaside resort on the edge of Swansea Bay, in South Wales. The village reaches to the western most tip of the Bay of Swansea and is made up of a number of districts including Mayals, Newton, Oystermouth and West Cross. Some 5 miles from the city centre, Mumbles village is a suburb of the City of Swansea. But Mumbles is also on the easternmost tip of the beautiful Gower coastline giving residents and visitors alike the best of both worlds. Choose to visit the city centre of Swansea and enjoy all that this "City by the Bay" has to offer including a vibrant shopping centre, theatres, a Blue Flag Marina, an annual Dylan Thomas Festival, and Swansea's latest development an exciting new waterpark with Britain's first indoor surfing machine.

Alternatively, choose to use the Mumbles as the "Gateway to the Gower". A short walk to the Mumbles headland brings fantastic views of Swansea Bay, Mumbles Pier and Lighthouse, and the Mumbles Rocks. The actual Mumbles are the two small islands that project out from the headland into the Bristol Channel. I would strongly recommend a walk on the Mumbles Pier. The powerful currents of the Bristol Channel rush below your feet and on through the gaps between the Mumbles Islands. A lone angler told me he had caught Sea Bass between 6lb and 8lb. That's big Bass.
A ten minute walk around the Mumbles Point and you are in the beautiful Langland Bay a great beach much favoured by surfers and all watersport enthusiasts.
Oystermouth Castle
Jump in the car and a ten-minute drive brings you to two of the best beaches in Britain, Oxwich Bay, and Three Cliffs Bay. However, Gower has more than just beaches to offer with beautiful woodlands, cliff top walks, ancient castles and interesting old churches seemingly in every village.
The village of Mumbles itself has much to offer with it's very own castle, Oystermouth Castle, the afore mentioned Mumbles Pier with amusements restaurant and bowling alley, a wide selection of cosmopolitan cafe's and a good number of proper shops.
In bygone days the " Mumbles Mile", a stretch of road that was notable for its concentration of pubs was a popular destination for pub crawls but with increased competition from Swansea's night attractions most notably the Wind Street district, there are now fewer than ten pubs on the 'mile', whereas there were once upwards of twenty. Today the nightlife revolves around eating rather than drinking with a wide selection of restaurants and bistros to be found in Mumbles.
