**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.

Really lovely views, nice to walk on a day out if the weather is nice for a change!! Was surprisingly okay during this visit, just a little cloudy so a brisk walk was nice to warm up. Nice little cafes to have lunch nearby.

Lovely walk along the coastal path lead to Worms Head. There is a causeway over to this Island which can be crossed at low tide. Do not get caught over there as the tide comes in quickly! There is a superb beach with the wreck...More

Stunning! A must-visit if you are in or near the Gower. Leave plenty of time if you want to walk the length of the beach, and watch out for jellyfish!
