If anyone ever asks where my favourite place in the world is, they are always a little taken aback when I say “Wales” Well South Wales that is. A little place called Oxwich Bay on the Gower peninsular. Voted one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, which may come as a surprise to some.
But I have been holidaying here since way back when. It’s a place my family always return to, even more so since we all grew up.
I myself have never been abroad. I have always stayed right here in the UK, finding all the little jewels my own country has to offer and they are vast, albeit well hidden.
Oxwich bay doesn’t have a lot to offer attraction wise. But the beauty of this small village and the people who live here are enough to keep you coming back year on year.
The hotel practically on the beach has become the must have wedding venue. Set in the forefront of the beautiful forest the runs alongside the village, it’s a wonderful place to eat and stay.
Who doesn’t want to dine on the beachfront and watch the sun go down?
Just look how beautiful it is…
The beach is stunning, with hundreds of rock pools and total freedom for the kids, we can spend all day here, hidden away from the world. Forgetting about the fact I have multiple sclerosis and just enjoy each other.
The sea is crystal clear and many a treasure can be found, and I’m not just talking about the hundreds of shells…
I think Oxwich will forever be our got to place. Maybe it will even become the girl’s too? It’s a place untouched by commercialism, a place where you can forget the fast paced world and relax. Perfect.
The three things we love about Oxwich Bay?
The scenery, it’s stunning, even on rainy days.
The people. We have made friends for life here, that’s something we will never lose.
And finally, the fact its here in the UK. It’s so close yet remains so hidden and untouched.
