Overview

**The car park is currently being redeveloped. The site remains open, but has a reduced capacity as a result.** 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.

Even on a cold, windy day it’s an amazing view from the top. There’s plenty of good walks in all directions. There’s a large car park run by the National Trust.

See the title - you have to visit. Even in bad weather, this place is amazing. If you are a National Trust member, parking is free.

You can walk on the cliffs and enjoy breath taking view. Do not miss this place on a sunny day and the sunday roast

Rhossili Bay is a beautiful place to visit when in Wales. We drove from Swansea to Rhossili Bay, which took approximately 50 minutes. When we arrived, the tide was high which meant we couldn't go over to Worm's Head but we still could enjoy the...More

Bright and windy with fine views. This popular site is helped by the large National trust car park, Les wooden ship timbers showing from the sand down on the beach than when we visited a few years ago.

Absolutely! Sorry about the delay in responding; despite having notifications turned on for questions, I didn’t receive a notification! Whenever I’ve been there, dogs have loved the beach and have never been a problem ☺️

As others have said, 5-10 down and 10-20 back again from the National trust car park. It is possible to avoid the few steps by walking via the Warren track from behind the church. Since the original steps were washed away a... More

If you are driving, i would suggest take both. Carrier for the beach, as others also pointed out, it is a steep slope downwards from the car park, a good 20 mins if you are average fitness level. Pram is useless here... More
