**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.

First visit here and what a visually stunning location. The views from the NT car park to worms head are wonderful and panoramic. We could only stay a couple of hours but a brief walk around convinced us that we need to come back and spend a day or two walking the area. What a find

National Trust have started to modernise the car park which will help. Free if a member. The rest is down to nature and WOW, it does a great job. The bay is spectacular as a view or a walk. The sands, because of its size, always looks empty. If you would rather stay on the Cliff walk then this has... More

Beautiful and almost deserted even at Easter! Miles of golden sand. Well worth visiting Eddy's cafe at the caravan park midway along the beach, St Mary's Church and the high path along the top of the Downs.

Why do you need to go anywhere else in the world when you have views like this? The most beautiful sight in the world.

We walked the coastal path up to Worm's head and back to the car park. The views were stunning! The path is very well mantained.

Fab beach, what a shame that people have to spoil it by picking up dog much then leaving on the side in a bag. We are dog owners and always clear up after our dog, I really don't understand why you would pick it up then leave the bag? The beach is very long and lovely to walk along. Steep... More

Rhossili is a beautiful beach to visit in all seasons. Great for walking. Car park can be difficult when its busy and we paid £2 for a two hour stay. The roads into the beach and car parking area are not the widest and can be tricky with the other cars coming in and out when busy. There are toilet... More

Visited on a windy Easter Sunday. Have given a 'very good' review as, when we arrived, the organisation by the parking attendants was abysmal. We actually drove out then had to find somewhere to turn around so we could go back. By that point, they seemed to be a little more organised and we ended up parking on the grass.... More

I think this area is absolutely breathtaking, well done national trust for keeping it the way its meant to be, your work in the car park will be well worth it once all the landscaping has been done, I'm sure that if everyone knows the parking charges for the car park stays on gower to maintain the site a lot...
