Bored of the usual holiday routine and looking for something different? Well look no further! South Wales has so much to do and see, you certainly won't be bored. With its unique blend of coast, city and countryside it offers all the sports and activities imaginable from gentle to extreme. Then there's the festivals, food, art exhibitions, castles and legends, theatre and football - and beaches - miles and miles of beaches! Come and find out for yourself, you'll have a wonderful time and a holiday to remember.
Start the day…
With a brisk walk along the Gower Coastal Path. Gower is all about the beaches and the views – a stroll along the clifftops, almost anywhere in the peninsula, will take your breath away. The most dramatic is the tide-dependent walk from the clifftop of Rhossili out along the promontory known as Worm's Head. Check when best to attempt it with the tide tables at Rhossili Visitors Centre, at the start of the walk.
Spend the morning…
Swimming, strolling and beachcombing on Oxwich Bay, where only a kiosk breaks the wide sweep of safe, shallow beach. In 1963, the Nature Conservancy Council (now the Countryside Council for Wales) leased all 700 acres from the Penrice Estate, making it a National Nature Reserve. For its freshwater lakes, swamps, freshwater marshes, salt marshes, dunes, cliffs, woodland and more than 600 species of flowering plants, don't forget your binoculars.
Or head to Reynoldston and take the road across Cefn Bryn Common. Park in the centre and stroll the short distance to Arthur's Stone.

Wales' coastline named 'the greatest region on Earth in 2012' by Lonely Planet
A travellers' bible has described the Welsh coastline as “the greatest region on Earth to visit in 2012”. Lonely Planet – one of the world’s leading travel publishers – has lavished praise on Wales because next year it becomes the first country to boast a footpath running along its entire coastline. The All Wales Coast Path will run from Chepstow right the way to Queensferry in Flintshire, North Wales. It will stretch some 870 miles (1,400km) when it is opened in May. It was highlighted in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2012, which features 10 countries, regions and cities handpicked by the publisher’s experts as the most impressive places to visit. Lonely Planet author Sarah Baxter wrote of Wales’ selection in top spot: “What a wonderful thing: to walk the entire length of a country’s coastline, to trace its every nook, cranny, cliff-face, indent and estuary. How better to truly appreciate the shape – and soul – of a nation?” Almost £10m has been spent on the coastal path in recent years - by the Assembly, the Countryside Council for Wales (CCW) and the national parks.
