We have exclusive hire of beachside Port Eynon hostel in the beautiful Gower Peninsula in South Wales. A rare chance to stay at one of the most scenic hostels, YHA Port Eynon enjoys unparalleled sea views from its large lounge windows.

Thursday: After checking in we will take a short stroll to explore the area around the hostel and the Port Eynon area.

Friday: After breakfast we will head westwards on an 11-mile circular walk from the hostel along the the Gower coastal path towards Worms Head and the village of Rhossili. On the walk along this fabulous coastline we will come across beaches and cliffs so we should spot a wide diversity of wildlife along the way. Those not wanting to complete the full walk can take the bus from Rhossili back to Port Eynon.

Saturday: As this is a summer break we are planning make use of the many local beach facilities and local sightseeing options. Late afternoon and early evening weather permitting, there will be a bring your own food and drink to party on the beach.

Sunday: We will head off eastwards along the Gower coastal path on route to Oxwich where we will find a castle as well as a national nature reserve and given time we will also visit St Illtyd's Church before making our way back. Again those not wanting to complete the full walk can take the bus back to to the hostel.

Monday: Will see us check out of the hostel and make our way home.

Booking conditions for HAWOG events

  • If you submit a booking and your request can be met then you are committed to the purchase.
  • It is your responsibility to know or check in advance the total price per person or room.
  • If your request can be met then you'll receive an email from the organiser informing you of the total price, how calculated, and you'll be required to pay within 14 days of the date of the email. It's your responsibility to remember to check and respond to that email.
  • All places purchased are for a single bed in a same sex room exclusive to our group, unless agreed otherwise in writing by the organiser or you have booked a stated, available room. The number of beds in a room will vary.
  • If you cancel you will only get a refund if someone else pays for your place. Until then, you'll be expected to pay any outstanding balance. It's your responsibility to find a replacement, you can do this by emailing our group and informing that you have a place to sell, and letting the event organiser know. The group will sell remaining uncommitted places first before 'returned' places.

If your request cannot be met then you will be informed of this and what possibilities are available. You may then inform the organiser if you want to be added to a waiting list and/or submit another booking which meets one of the possibilities. A waiting list means you get informed soonest if suitable places or rooms become available, it does not commit you to purchasing them but you will need to confirm, and book, in a short period of time if you want them.
