If you want a challenging weekend on the Gower then this might be the walk for you. Following the Wales Coastal Path in the main, this section starts in Crofty and follows the coast through Cheriton and to Whiteford Point before finishing the day of by a testing walk over The Beacon and into Rhossili.
