Gower peninsula was the first place in the UK given the status of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1956. When you go here and see Worms Head, you'll see why.

This is the tall tower in the Maritime quarter. At the top is a restaurant called the Grape and Olive. I would say to pop up there for a drink or coffee to take in the views.

My favourite park in Swansea. So spacious, and peaceful. @flynn'scoffee is also a great pop up coffee stop in the park. You can go through here to get to the beach and the uni. There's also a boating lake with a little pitch and putt, down towards the hospital end.
