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.

We've walked each end, sat, bbq'd, played football, cricket, swam and people watched. Plenty of the oldies and teenagers to do and admire. National Trust toilets are clean and well provisioned with hand towels although a long way if you are planning on sitting on the beach below. At the other end we paid £3 to park at Hillend Campsite... More

I can only imagine how beautiful this place is in the sunshine. Largely because on the day of our visit in late July we experienced the weather conditions that make the Gower a great place to grow potatoes. What I can say is that in the rain and mist there is a powerful flint grey hard faced beauty that is... More

This is a stunning large beach. The views from above on the cliffs or from the beach itself are stunning. At the far end of the beach from Rhosili there are sand dunes to explore. When the tide is out you can walk along the cliffs discovering the caves and rock pools. We saw a group climbing the cliffs. The... More

My friends took myself, My fiance and my Mother-in-law here today 27/07/16 to see the views and for a little walk. I love this place, so peaceful and beautiful. Just close your eyes, take in that fresh sea air and listen to the waves as they slowly caress the bay. There is no wondering how this was voted best beach... More

There is very little more to say about this place than just visit it! The beach is amazing! The views are breath taking! The one tricky bit for some maybe the 1/4 hike to and from the beach. We had two dogs and two children (aged 2 and 3) and it was fine. The path is well maintained etc so... More

Exhilarating walk - one for the bucket wish. You can only get across & back through certain tide times. Thr walk itself is a little challenging but well worth it.

We decided to visit Rhossili Bay after reading about it in the National Trust guide. It lived up to the billing received as one of the most stunning locations in Wales. We were fortunate to enjoy good weather and took in the walk to Worms Head. Great views and worth it although windy!!!

I've been here twice on the last two years and both times (in spite of the weather - once scorching hot and once drowning rain!) have had fantastic times and experiences here. It's great for peace and quiet, walking and for mountain biking - once the best xc rides I have ever done was here. From the ridgeway to the... More
