We've sat beside the Devil's Bridge on the Worms's Head, watching seals basking in the sun beneath us. The access via the Shipway takes longer than expected because of the rock formation.
We camped at the CL at Middleton, which was great for general walking around the coastline. You can even get to the Worm's Head PH mentioned by t'other Andrew Ball via a simple footpath from the site.
A good walk with superb views is to cross the road at the CL, and walk up School Lane. Higher up, and just before water works on the left you pass the white painted Middleton Hall Cottage, birthplace of Edgar Evans (of the 1911-12 Scott Antarctic Expedition.) Here you branch off left to The Beacon summit and OS trig point. Simply stroll along the clear Rhossili Down summit footpath, passing the remains of burial chambers all around. At the ridge end, descend the obvious path beside Hillend Caravan Park, and return to the pub along the lower path just above the beach, and past the solitary Old Vicarage until you reach the steps back up to the Worm's Head PH. Here there are the barely visible remains of the Helvetia wrecked in 1887.
If you are lucky with the weather, you won't forget it.
