Llangennith is a village situated on the western edge of Gower Peninsula.

The name is derived from the Welsh word “Llangenydd”, meaning Church of St Cenydd. The village is extremely popular amongst surfers and is considered the surfing capital of Gower, due to its west-facing location in direct line of any consistent swells that pour in from the Atlantic Ocean.  There are gentle walks north-west to the coast over the sand dunes of Llangennith and Broughton Burrows. Signposts to watch out for include Blue Pool, a dramatic rock pool which in the right sea and sky conditions takes a deep blue colour, the natural archway called Three Chimneys.
