The quiet north Gower coast with its extensive saltmarsh and dunes
North Gower is a tranquil place, for quiet enjoyment, bird watching and walking. Much of the north coast is a large expanse of saltmarsh, which is an ever-changing landscape of mudflats and tidal ditches. Along with Whiteford Burrows, it is an internationally important feeding ground for wading birds and wildfowl.
The Bulwark is an Iron Age hill fort, found at the top of Llanmadoc Hill. From here there are impressive views across Gower and to the sea beyond. Ryers Down is an open heathland that can be seen from Llanmadoc Hill. It is home to some rare and unusual animals, insects and plants such as the Three-lobed Crowfoot.
