For the Walker ...
Head out of Patricks onto the promenade, turn right, and if you keep the sea on your left you will be able to follow a coastal path past Bracelet and Limeslade bays, round the cliff path to Rotherslade, Langland and Caswell bays. A pit stop for an ice cream, and if it's really warm, find a good space on any one of the beaches, relax and take a swim.Then up the steep hill from Caswell and follow the road back to Mumbles, along the promenade;final destination Patricks - in time for a relaxing bath, a drink and then a well deserved dinner.
