Mumbles is a village and seaside resort on the edge of Swansea Bay, in South Wales. The village reaches to the western most tip of the Bay of Swansea and is made up of a number of districts including Mayals, Newton, Oystermouth and West Cross. Some 5 miles from the city centre, Mumbles village is a suburb of the City of Swansea. But Mumbles is also on the easternmost tip of the beautiful Gower coastline giving residents and visitors alike the best of both worlds. Choose to visit the city centre of Swansea and enjoy all that this "City by the Bay" has to offer including a vibrant shopping centre, theatres, a Blue Flag Marina, an annual Dylan Thomas Festival, and Swansea's latest development an exciting new waterpark with Britain's first indoor surfing machine.
Alternatively, choose to use the Mumbles as the "Gateway to the Gower". A short walk to the Mumbles headland brings fantastic views of Swansea Bay, Mumbles Pier and Lighthouse, and the Mumbles Rocks. The actual Mumbles are the two small islands that project out from the headland into the Bristol Channel. I would strongly recommend a walk on the Mumbles Pier. The powerful currents of the Bristol Channel rush below your feet and on through the gaps between the Mumbles Islands. A lone angler told me he had caught Sea Bass between 6lb and 8lb. That's big Bass. ....
