to Rhossili Bay -bus 118 from Swansea and walking paths from Rhossili to the bay

Hello,
Has anyone taken the bus 118 "Adventure Travel" from Swansea to Rhossili?
Are there places en route that are interesting where we should get off the bus and explore?

One we arrive at the bus station in Rhossili are there recommended paths to walk on to get to Rhossili Bay and walk around that area? Where do I find a map of the walking paths? Is there a particular path that you recommend?

Thanks in advance!

I would highly recommend this walk at Rhossili:>https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/visit/wales/rhosili-and-south-gower-coast/rhosili-headland-walk
You could extend this walk a bit along the south coast or take a short cut around fields from Fall Bay back to Rhossili village. If you want to descend to Fall Bay (that’s the south facing bay), you can clamber down a gully on the east side of the bay - but you have to be a mountain goat to do it.

Also consider this walk - but it is MUCH steeper:>https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/visit/wales/rhosili-and-south-gower-coast/rhosili-down-hillend-and-beach-walk

If you want to get off the 118 to see more of Gower, I would suggest that you do this at Penmaen House. Go to the south side of the road and find the row of houses with some parking outside, Go through gate & follow rough track and fork R after the second gate. Don’t drop down to Tor Bay but stay on the high ground on left and you will find some fab views of Oxwich Bay to west and Three Cliffs Bay to east. Suggest that you do this on return if time permits because you need to prioritise Rhossili. See Google Map.
