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.

Great views from the top and bottom actually. It is a steep walk up/down so not for everybody but the wormshead pub at the top is nice and the owner is a lovely bloke! You can walk to Llangenith beach when the tide is out from Rhossili.

Just the best beach! Walk 30 mins and you can get away from the crowds and if feeling really worthy help the National Trust and collect litter, which is immensely satisfying (there is a huge amount when you start looking) but which really doesnt distract from what is simply an amazing stretch of sand and crashing waves. It is completely... More

Sunshine and vast expanse of beautiful sand! Quite a reward for the path/steps down... [Sadly inaccessible for some visitors of varying abilities.] So much space for everyone who could get down and up. Even with low tide still worth a refreshing small-waves swim. Who needs a wetsuit (except the fine surfing ladies & gents) - water was not cold at... More

We got to the beach by way of a spectacular cliff walk which had some (what seemed to my middle-aged hips!) steep inclines to navigate. The spectacular views were the reward for the effort. There were plenty of naturally occurring resting places where the view could be savoured. The weather was clear so we had a great view of Worms... More

We take all our visitors to Rhossili to admire the stunning views. Our son took his girlfriend to Rhossili and proposed to her.... Of course she said yes!!

A walk to worms head is a great experience but not for the feint hearted. Some parts of the walk need a scrambling/climbing ability and the correct footwear is essential. Saying that to get to the end is very rewarding and whilst there we saw seals and a number of good surfers. Be wary of the time slots as some... More

This beach is such a nice beach and good location, but the walk is soooooo tiring!!! There are loose sheep on the mountains too.

Stunning views from the cliff top. No doubt a beautiful beach, however, quite a trek down the cliff steps so not very convenient if you need to carry loads of beach stuff, go back to the car, or need the loo. The tide goes out quite far, leaving lovely warm rock pools, ideal for tots, however, the sea comes in... More

Stunning views and relatively quiet even for high season. Many people there but most just wanted to go to Worm's Head. Walk a bit further either way and you can get quite lonely.

Obviously a bit weather depended but on a clear sunny day this is one of the best beaches anywhere in the UK. Huge long beach (several miles) on one side, and the awesome Worms Head Cliffs on the other. Explore the caves along the bottom of the cliffs, take a dip in the many rock pools or just walk in...
