Discovering Swansea

One of the best things about moving somewhere new is going exploring, and Swansea has no shortage of places to experience and revisit. Here are a few of my favourites so far!

1. Swansea Bay
Swansea Bay has the second highest tidal range in the world. From high tide to low tide (and back again!), it's a constantly changing postcard picture, and when the sun shines I really do feel like I'm on holiday. I love how the atmosphere of the bay changes throughout the day.

2. Three Cliffs Bay
What really strikes me about Three Cliffs Bay is just how quiet and peaceful it is. The gentle background sound of waves and the endless expanse of sand is so beautiful and relaxing. I think that the weather and time of day affects the general "feel" of Three Cliffs. On a dull, wintery day, it can appear to be dark and moody, whereas on a sunny day it's a carefree and idyllic hideaway.

3. Caswell Bay
Caswell Bay is a happy place. Lots of dog walkers, families and surfers.

4. Epic views!
Sometimes I get surprised by the beautiful views from unexpected places. I took these shots from a housing estate in Ravenhill.

5. Oxwich Bay
What a fabulous beach! Perfect for paddle boarding, and there are lots of lovely walks in the surrounding area.

6. Rhossili
Take a trip to Rhossili, find your spot and watch the sun go down. It's on the southwestern tip of the Gower Peninsula, and it's pretty special.
