Description: Rhossili Bay lies at the western end of the beautiful Gower peninsula. 3...
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.

Rhossili is a stunning beach. The road into the village feels like it takes forever, but it is well worth it when you do get there and catch your first glimpse of the beach and coast. It was a bank holiday when we visited, so understandably busy, but the beach is so big that it never feels crowded. The view... More

Mum and I parked in the NT car park at the head of the path to the cliff and then strolled the leisurely half or mile or so along the headland to the CoastWatch hut to chat with the Officers and overview the walk to Worm's Head (doable for about 5 hours a day over a causeway when the tide... More

Stunning views, we walked up to Llangennith via Rhossili Down on a lovely sunny day. Perfect. We parked at the car park next to the National Trust shop (£6) and admired the views from there, then hiked up Rhossili Down - worth it for the stunning views. Then on to the kings head at Llangennith. Great food - I'd recommend... More

When you arrive and park up your car at this location the scenery and views immediately hit you. Take a walk along the coast towards the worms head. Time it well and you may be lucky to cross to the isand on low tide. Look out for the wildlife especially the seals

If you are planning a visit to Cardiff, you must plan a visit to see Rhossili Bay...pristine and beautiful and wonderful hospitality of the restaurants there. One just needs to walk around and admire and be one with nature. Vast expanse of beach and blue sea. Take a walk to Caswell Bay...another great walk and sight to behold.
