About
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 car park is free to NT members during the day. Non members are currently charged £5 per day (car). There is no overnight parking/camping. All profits from the car park go towards keeping the area beautiful. Please note that the toilets are owned and operated by Swansea Council.

What an absolutely beautiful place! Compared to Three Cliffs Bay, which we visited this trip, it is simply sublime! The sunset was stunning and the whole area is just perfect. Would definitely return! 😍

Lovely clean beach, stairs up and down bit steep. A work out on their own. Dogs loved to be able to run, lots of other doggie walkers but able to find space.

This is a stunning beach, even on a cloudy, windy October day. Completely unspoilt, gorgeous sand, very peaceful. Highly recommended if you are visiting the Gower.

Beautiful place and we had a lovely coastal walk with some stunning views. We didn’t get to worms head as it was high tide but gives a reason to go back.

We went on a typical uk autumn day and were very pleased with just how beautiful a beach this is. Excellent for surfing and kite surfing which looked like great fun. We decided to walk the entire length which was about 3 miles which was fine and the dog enjoyed it to but the walk back was into the wind and did make it a bit tiring!

The view over the bay is breath-taking - miles upon miles of golden sands uninterrupted except by the waves. A true delight and incredibly beautiful. Well worth a visit.

What an amazing place. My Moroccan husband didn’t believe places like this exist in the UK.
It’s just perfect. Vast and pristine. A wonderful way to spend a day. We loved it. Steep descent and return but very doable for most people.

Pub at the top was well organised and clean. We enjoyed the views a while longer with a glass of something on a beautiful sunny day in September. Perfect is the only word.

Great views from the cliff tops but parking can be a bit hit and miss to get a place even in September. Avoid the ice cream vintage van in the car park though!
I went to get two ice creams and the bloke that was manning the van was more interested in his phone than me as a customer.
When he finally managed to tear himself away from his phone I asked about if the ice cream was gluten free. He pointed to the Vegan Mango. Ok I thought I will ask again as the other half has to be careful with gluten. When I did he pulled a book down from above his head and said ' have a look as I'm not advising you incase anything goes wrong!. I explained to him that it was really up to him to tell me if they were gluten free or not. He didn't like that and started raising his voice and told me to go elsewhere to buy ice cream. In this day and age where people have died from reactions to allergens I would expect vendors to be fully up to speed on this but obviously he didn't give a toss. So if you have an allergy or just really want to know what's in your ice cream AVOID THIS ICE CREAM VAN LIKE THE PL AGUE.

Stunning beach. Easy parking but one loo???? That's ridiculous for all the people who were visiting the beach. They need to build a proper toilet block for visitors.
