Shortly after the start it takes in a Neolithic burial chamber and a cave that was inhabited for about 20,000 years. Thereafter we go on the Gower Way for a woodland walk and a small hill with big views before heading down to the coast where we will have lunch on the beach. Swimming is optional. After lunch the route is tide dependent. At low tide it is possible to walk round the headland to 3 Cliffs Bay but otherwise we take in a section of the Wales Coastal Path. Both routes take in the steppingstones over the Pennard Pill and then a climb up to the ruins of Pennard castle.

Before getting back to the car park there is the opportunity to have a proper dairy ice cream. If you have time why not visit the Gower Heritage Centre as well?
