Weather and natural environment: The South coast of Gower has an extremely mild climate. Caswell Bay in particular enjoys a sheltered location tucked behind its westerly headland- a unique microclimate. The sun shines on more than 260 days and if there is a storm or rain it soon clears up , usually bringing a fresh weather system from the South West. The vegetation in the sheltered bays and valleys of South Gower reflect this equable climate and the vegetation is lush and abundant. Perfumed wild flowers abound in spring, gorse and heather blanketing the cliff tops and headlands and the coves have verdant ivies and wild garlic blossom as well as elegant cypress trees. The tidal range in Caswell Bay means that there is always an opportunity to explore the rock pools and caves that line the sandy beach at low tide. Starfish, anemones and crabs as well and limpet and mussel fields are exciting to discover amongst the caves and platforms. At low tide it is possible to take the beach route to nearby beaches like Langland.
