Owner description: 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.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

The natural splendour of this beach, with Worms Head at one end and Burry Holm at the other. Spectacular dunes and waves.

We parked at Llangeneth by the caravan park. It was a shame the café was closed. Kids needed the loo so we drove up to the village. The Kings Head was open at 11.30 so we popped in. It is a great country pub and we had drinks and a few baskets of chips. Ideal as we had hail, rain, sun, wind all seasons in one day.

“Rhossili”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Amazing beach. Remains of a nineteeth century ship wreck just visible at the Worm's Head end. Great for surfing too; I took my son and his friends a few years ago and they loved the Surf School.
