Rhossili Bay lies at the western end of the beautiful Gower peninsula. 3 miles of golden sands, iconic landscapes including Worms Head and Rhossili Down and history everywhere- from neolithic through to the more recent, including home to Edgar Evans. Its a walker's dream with routes in all directions, including the Welsh coastal path. The beach is dog friendly all year round and the whole area is beautiful whatever the weather. Today, the National Trust cares for 2 of the 3 miles of the beach, Rhossili Down, and most of the coastline between Rhossili and Port Eynon. (26 miles of Gower coastline in total). The landscape is free. The village of Rhossili also contains other private businesses- The Worms Head Hotel, The Bay Bistro, Sam's Surf Shack, Coastal Surf And Gifts, The Causeway (cafe) and Rhossili Gallery. The car park is free overnight and free to members during the day. Non members are currently charged £4 per day (car). All profits from the car park go towards keeping the area beautiful. Please note that the toilets are owned and operated by Swansea Council.

If you are in the area you MUST visit. The drive from Swansea was delightful, beautiful views, sheep, wild horses & cows roaming around so be ware! We walked along the cliff, all the way round past the worms head and back into the village - not a long or hard walk but very pleasant, just keep the wall to... More

What a stunning bay, and a delightful walk out to Worms Head, where you can watch the oyster catchers and search the rock pools.

First time visiting this part of the world as usually go to Cornwall or Devon for small breaks but wow, I have fallen in love with this place! We stayed in nearby Llangenwith so was a great base to tour around. We drove to Rhosilli and I had read about how difficult it was to get down to the beach... More

This bay is one of the best on the Gower, which is blessed with many beautiful beaches. What makes this one so special is the view from the cliff tops - Worm's Head, the wreck on the shore (visible at low tide) and the rolling Atlantic breakers.

One of the best beaches Wales has to offer, perhaps even Britain as a whole. The beach extends for miles with gold sands, which makes for a perfect day in the hotter months of the year. Great for sunbathing, relaxing, reading a book, building sandcastles, gentle stroll along the beach, or walking the dog. If you're ever nearby, it's worth... More

A fantastic place for a walk - it is absolutely beautiful. It took me about an hour to walk from the car park all the way along the "worm's back" and onto the end of the head. It's a fairly tricky scramble across the middle causeway but well worth the effort.

This must be one of the best beaches in Europe ... even on a December day it was stunning. Dogs allowed all year but it's so big there is room for a lot! Don't miss it - if you don't fancy the steep walk down then drive to Hillend and park in the dunes.

I absolutely love this beach located in Wales! I went today and have been before and it is so so breathtaking. The waves are wild but in a good way. There is just so much adventure!
