Compared by poets for centuries with the Bay of Naples, Swansea Bay has the second highest tidal range in the world. Welsh poet Dylan Thomas described it as "a long and splendid curving shore" - his birthplace had panoramic views across its seascape. In the 19th Century, Swansea Bay became a port of international significance, canvas sails filled the skies above these waves, carrying precious loads of copper to Cape Horn and the four corners of the globe. Her sweeping shores became the backbone of the world's first railway service in 1807 and today the warm sands of Swansea blaze a golden trail to Gower peninsular - a place where seaside dreams have been fulfilled for thousands of years.
