Whiteford Burrows is a dune and pine plantation, just North of Llanmadoc.
Owned by the National Trust, it is classified as one of the many National
Nature Reserves that we have on Gower.
To the West is Whiteford Sands, a vast two mile expanse of beach at the
edge of the Loughor Estuary,
Off the end of Whiteford Point stands an old lighthouse which is now the
only cast iron lighthouse, surrounded by sea in the UK. The approach to
the lighthouse takes quite a while and it appears never to get any closer!
Don't forget to check the tides before you set off.
Parking is in the little village of Cwm Ivy, it is a 15-20 minute walk
through the National Nature Reserve and the sand dunes. There is always
some sand, even at high tide. A haven for ornithologists and botanists
