From the base of the limestone cliffs at Cwm Ivy, the long sandy finger of Whiteford Burrows national nature reserve stretches northwards into the middle of the Burry Inlet. Behind the strip of dunes, The dunes are a landscape of small hills with damp hollows in between. Behind the sandy beach are the open dunes, where the bleached white marram grass is splashed with summer colour. The reserve has a multitude of birds, butterflies and plants. It is a lovely place in summer and a beautiful alternative to the Riviera of the south Gower beaches.
