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.

We did a 4 mile walk around Rhossili. There is a large car park here near the Worms Head Hotel which has a cost but this is not expensive. We walked up the hill past the Church and walked along the path to the old rectory with views of the beach. We continued as far as the caravan park then... More

Rhossili beach is a beautiful stretch of Welsh beach that spans for miles. It has great views of Worms Head and the shipwreck is still visible from back in the 1800's which is a big talking point. There are a fair few steps along a very steep path to get down and back from the beach but benches along the... More

I was visiting Wales for the first time and was amazed at how beautiful this little country was. Everywhere we went, the people were lovely and the scenery was breathtaking. Even so I wasn't expecting to see so much beauty when I visited Rhossili. I couldn't believe it. My friend and I just drove up, parked the car, and there... More

Rhossilli bay has the most beautiful sunsets and is a lovely place for a leisurely evening stroll even outside of the summer season.

My wife and I both had plenty of childhood memories here and we certainly weren't disappointed this time. Rhossili Bay is an amazing place to visit at any age

Long walk down to beach so make sure you can carry what you need and take all you need for your beach visit. Very picturesque, lovely beach, sea goes out a long way so make sure you plan your visit when the tide is in. Can get quite windy as beach is very long. Good for walking.

I visited here with my dad when visiting family by Swansea Marina, the views and scenery are absolutely stunning real untouched beauty. It's well worth a visit to see the views and unwind at an untouched beach. I will be visiting here again and recommending it to friends and family

If you are in the area you MUST visit. The drive from Swansea was delightful, beautiful views, sheep, wild horses & cows roaming around so be ware! We walked along the cliff, all the way round past the worms head and back into the village - not a long or hard walk but very pleasant, just keep the wall to... More
