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.

My wife and I both had plenty of childhood memories here and we certainly weren't disappointed this time. Rhossili Bay is an amazing place to visit at any age

Long walk down to beach so make sure you can carry what you need and take all you need for your beach visit. Very picturesque, lovely beach, sea goes out a long way so make sure you plan your visit when the tide is in. Can get quite windy as beach is very long. Good for walking.

I visited here with my dad when visiting family by Swansea Marina, the views and scenery are absolutely stunning real untouched beauty. It's well worth a visit to see the views and unwind at an untouched beach. I will be visiting here again and recommending it to friends and family

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.
