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.

In between the showers, the sun came out over Rhossili bay, the mist cleared away from Worm's head and the low tide revealed the Helvetia shipwreck. A magical experience.

A lovely bay and beach, we visited on a sunny day in October and the views from the top are amazing. Plenty of places to stop, drink in the surroundings or just gaze out to see. Great for both serious and casual walkers.

I have reviewed this location under Llangennith Beach but now realise they are one in the same place. I'll just say the bay surrounds the beach and leave it at that. Anyway we aimed for Worm's Head on Sat Nav and it was straightforward enough. Last reviewer states £2 for car park but think that was just for an hour,... More

Rich W, Manager at Rhossili Bay, responded to this review

Hi, the charges in the car park are £2 for up to 2 hrs or £4 all day (cars). There is consensus on the name of the bay being Rhossili. The beach name depends on which end of the 3 miles of sand you are at or access it from. The National Trust refers to the beach under its care... More

The lovely National Trust Warden met our Cubs group and took us for a walk along the headland with fun and engaging talks on the local history of the site. The kids were fascinated with the location and what they learnt. They then flew their Kites down on the most amazing beach and of course paddled and got wet!

Another sweeping beach that goes on and on and on. Walked from Slade to Rhossili first day of holidays. Therefore didn't go down on the sands. Had snack in the pub and watched others cross over to worms head. Came back with car later in the week and walked along beach, dunes and headland.

A surprisingly spectacular beach - even after everyone had said is was spectacular. Fantastic walks all around and lots of more challenging rocks and scrambles for the more adventurous.

Even though it was Autumn and the winter spells where just around the corner, we decided to camp outside and have explore what Rhossili had to offer. And wothout a doubt, we loved it. Loved it a lot. Breathtaking & truly magnificent sea. Nice and quite place for couples. Very nice beach & sunset.

Rhossili Bay is an outstanding place of the Gower peninsula. Attractions are Worms Head with a stunning blowhole, the remains of an old iron-age fortress, a medieval church, one of the best surfing beaches of Wales, ancient burials on a hill nearby and a spooky old Rectory. Highly recommended for a day out, even reachable by bus from Swansea.
