15 Mini Adventures To Go On In Swansea, Wales

Updated On 3rd January, 2020

At the beginning of September I headed to Wales to explore the coastal city of Swansea.

It was my first time back in the country since I was a wee munchkin and it was high time I returned to show you guys around.

Just like with my recent trips to Cornwall, Yorkshire and Scotland, Wales blew me away with it’s beauty. Notably, Rhossili Bay which has been voted one of the UK’s best beaches. I’m sure you’ll agree, after viewing the pictures below, it’s not hard to see why…

During my adventures in Swansea, I rested my head in the most perfect B&B in Langland Bay. Honestly, if I went back, I wouldn’t hesitate at all to book back in.

See more about my experience here.
