Culver Hole: a little way off the main coastal path leading from Port Eynon to Overton is this well hidden, yet fantastic sea cave. Local legend has it that one-time local smuggling kingpin John Lucas used this immense cave as a storehouse, which is hardly surprising given how well hidden it is. Nestled in a gnarled rocky cleft and covered by a vast 60ft honeycombed wall you would never know it was there unless told about it. Given our collective love of the Famous Five books there was much excitement as we entered the cave and conjured up our own stories and possibilities for where the cave might lead, with the myth that there’s a hidden tunnel leading back to the Salthouse in Port Eynon, further fuelling our imaginations.
Water Sports: it’s hardly surprising given the amount of coastline that the region is ideal for all manner of water sports, be it a simple dip in the sea with the children through to adrenaline-fuelled boat trips, and everything else in between. Our personal favourite is heading around the coast in kayaks, with the chance to see seals and, if you’re lucky, dolphins, although Harrison and Dorothy often prefer splashing in rock pools looking for crabs and star fish.
