Huge beach! Beautiful area with lots to see. Plenty of space for walking or just sitting and enjoying the scenery.

“Best beach ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Long, sweeping, golden sands. Gently shelving water. There are no facilities (you have to walk to Rhosilli) but a great place to spend the day.

“UK's best beach - and one of my favourite globally”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

This is without a doubt one of the most stunning beaches - period! The Gower Peninsula is thankfully preserved so that any new development is virtually impossible. This beach stretches forever with only one visible charming old house set back from the beach. At the far end, there is a campsite that is convenient if visually disappointing but it is set back for. The beach and therefore not seen. Even from Rhossili, the commanding view out over the beach is seeming,y unspoiled.

The beach faces out towards Ireland which means that there is almost always a reliable amount of surf for those keen to bring out a board. Indeedm this is the surfing destination in the region the beach is nearly as deep and gently sloping as it is wide - perfect for long runs on a surf board.

“Love this beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

I drive here 3 hrs every other weekend as if there's surf in the UK, you'll get it here. The beach is huge so you can always get a spot and friendly. Theres ample parking and unspoilt. Love it.
