Mumbles and Oystermouth

mumbles oystermouth.jpg
Derived from the French word Mamelles meaning breasts and used by visiting French sailors in reference to two offshore islets, the term Mumbles is interchangeable with Oystermouth, located at the western end of Swansea Bay.
This delightful seaside town is a livley place with good restaurants, budget hotels, pubs, cafes, a refurbished pier and the ruins of Oystermouth Castle to explore.
Around the headland, reached either by the longer coast road or by a short walk over the hill, is the district of Langland Bay, whose sandy beach is popular with surfers.
