#CaswellBay one of Britain's Hidden Gems highlighted on #ITVGoodmorning

Wow, what an honour to turn on the TV for the kids and there was our office staring back at us. Yes the gorgeous Caswell Bay near Mumbles village and only 5 miles from Wales sole Premier league city of Swansea.

Good Morning ITV reporter Nick Dixson was on the beach getting his feet wet and when asking a beach visitor about the pulls of Caswell she described as an "outdoor playground' perfect for children and families.

Gower based surfer Callum Thomas introduces himself and what lies ahead surfing wise.

I'm Callum Thomas and I'm 16 years old. I've been surfing for just over 2 years and I live just off the gower so every spot is about the same distance for me to get to. No one in my family surfs but my family and friends are very supportive for taking me. This summer I'm hoping to finally surf somewhere abroad as I've only surfed welsh cold water. Hopefully France or Portugal, wherever suits my mother best. I am In my last year in school and then I'll be moving onto college to study sport and then I'm hoping to do a bit of traveling ! I would like to travel to Bali as the waves there look amazing and waters warm ! Also I'd like to try Australia as the points around there will help me improve my surfing ! I have one problem. I think about sharks too much in Wales so wishing myself luck before I go to countries which has sharks galore. Image

Some may say what about Three Cliffs Bay? Or is it a clever ploy by those that know?

The focus for past two years has been on the amazing golden sands of Rhossili Bay stretching for 3 miles on the far west coast of Gower, exposed to the Atlantic swells. Three Cliffs however is tucked around the corner on the south coast of Gower. Last summer the family and I went to 3 Cliffs beach several times and it was empty! This got me thinking have the locals managed to shine the spot light on Rhossili to keep the real golden egg to themselves? Do the heads of Welsh tourism holiday at 3 Cliffs and like the locals love the silence? Only joking of course, as if you visit Gower, you will find several possible award winning beaches with no one on.. Sorry not going to say where, go search and enjoy.... Ps Don't forget Rhossili Bay is number one, isn't it? Image

Rhossili Bay a great place to learn to surf, plus it is the number one beach in UK

We operate at Rhossili Bay during periods of good weather and light winds, as it is so exposed to storms we have a back up beach which is Caswell Bay near the stunning village of Mumbles. Click on > for more images of Rhossili Bay Caswell Bay We offer surfing lesson to everyone and give discounts to large groups and armed services, simply contact the Gower surf school Image

    Oahu, Hawaii.

    • Perfect_righthand_point_peeling_at_lani_
      I love Hawaii, it's that simple. Every wave tests you and your ability. I truly believe that if one is to be a surfer he/she must travel to the home of surfing to sample it's delights at least once.
