“Hidden gold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Fall bay is a little known bay hiden around the headland from the Worms Head. Lots of people walk out to the Worm and don't venture any further but for a 20 minute walk further around you come to the top of this wonderful bay. It's the bay the locals use so that says it all. A hard climb down from either side so not for the faint hearted. But sitting on the beach or the flat rocks is amazing.

“Fall Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

Few of the regular Rhossili visitors get around to Fall Bay. Limited parking at Middleton (just before you get into Rhossili). Best to drive into Rhossili itself, park up and take the scenic walk out towards Worm's Head. At the National Coastwatch lookout, if you can tear yourself away from the awesome views of Worm's Head and Swansea Bay, bear left and follow the drystone wall some half mile to Fall Bay. A small rugged beach enjoyed by those who enjoy the stunning views of the rugged coastline. Check the rock pools on the western side of the bay (near the small boats) for prawns, crabs etc., a chance to brush up on your marine knowldege and enjoy the sound of the sea and the wind far from the noise of life and traffic.
