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.

Came here for a short overnight stay at a local B&B (Broad Park - would recommend highly). Such a gorgeous and lovely beach with cliffs set against some of the most enchanting and beautiful landscapes I have ever seen! Very beautiful and worth a visit with plenty to do and many bays and coves not too far away.

A stunning bay with walks along the top or sand and sea. Car park is pay and display, toilet facilities in the car park ok but nit always with paper. You can have ice cream, tea, or a meal. Gift shop. The main thing is the views and wildlife

Can't express in words how beautiful this place is. Was a cloudy but sunny day. It was a great walk down to Worms Head and I'd definitely recommend it if you are able. The walk to the beach is a bit of a steep one but definitely worth while. The small bistro by the car park was lovely with a... More

National Trust Rhossili bay is breathtaking beautiful. The rustic picturesque unspoilt terrain is a must when visiting South Wales.

This view is absolutely breathtaking. No matter what time of year that I visit, I am always impressed. It is connected to the Welsh Coastal Path.
