Love Rhossili Bay At Swansea

SECOND DAY IN CARDIFF- We started off the day driving up to NewSouth Wales University to pick up a friend and we proceeded to Bridgend which is around an hour away.  We stopped at Bridgend Designer Outlet Shopping Centre for a couple of hours, all because of my girl.  Something new to her and she spent a couple of hours walking around and eventually ended up buying just one piece!  Phew...a Big relief for me!!  Lol....

After our lunch at the food court, we continued on our journey to Swansea!   Aaron told us that we must visit Rhossili Bay, it has been voted into the top four of Britain's Best Beach by TripAdvisors Travellers’ Choice for four years running AND was the first beach to be awarded Britain's Best Beach for two years in succession!  The journey up the narrow roads were quite challenging and took us around 45 minutes to reach the spot....
The landmark ... Rhossili Bay....
Hotel named after the famous Worm Head island....
As we walked down the road leading to the hills.....
And one song came to my mind....
The hills are alive.....
With the sound of sea breeze......
Beautiful sight...just mesmerizing....
Layers and layers of waves.....
Panorama view.....
The Worm's head stretches out to sea and becomes an island when the tide comes in. The breathtaking view is completed by the long sandy beach and the towering cliffs and this makes it a popular destination throughout the year with surfers, paragliders and ramblers. However, Rhossili still manages to maintain its tranquility and unspoilt beauty.
We were at the cliff overlooking the sea....
Warning.... Steep cliffs....
However the young are very adventurous.... I get cold feet just looking at them from a distance..
That is the furthest I could stand and pose....
My cool pose... Lol...
Yes, I wish I could fly....
See the cliff behind me..... That is nothing compared to others...
I think I am safer with the sheep....
They are te happier lot!  Did a lot of Yaying Jumps!
We took numerous pictures just at the bay here....
A Must Visit place if anyone were to visit UK.... Swansea!!

    I think there is a large, covered market in Swansea if I am not mistaken selling a range of foods.
