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.

Have visited Rhossili beach a number of times. In peak summer don't miss the sunset view from the pub/hotel near the car park. Sit at the benches at the rear of the hotel with a glass of cold beer and admire the sunset. Bliss! Take a walk across the whole length of the beach and then up to the cliff... More

Great day visit. Arrived and had a lovely panini. Then a walk along the coastal path. Past the NT farm house property and many sheep. Then through the lodge property place for a cream tea. Sunny, windy but marvellous views of sea and beach.

I've never seen anything like this beach, there is a large beach area and places to walk around on the hill top. There is no bathroom or restaurants along the beach so you'll have to eat/go to the bathroom before or after on the hill entrance. You have to go down the hill, about a 10 minute walk down to...

Another enjoyable visit to Rhosili. Spent hours on the endless beach, girls built a massive sandcastle, which was eventually washed away by the incoming tide. The car park was well priced with amble room for loads of vehicles. Took time to enjoy the ice-cream van, and to use the local WC, before walking down to Worm's Head. See you again... More

Despite being a sunny bank holiday Monday we seemed to have a lot of space on the beach to ourselves, seems to be overlooked in favour of places like Weston but that suited our group just fine. Lovely beach with spectacular views, waves were a little strong for swimming but the water was surprisingly strong. Took a stroll towards the... More

At the end of a road, the bay has a large car park (free for National Trust members) and a National Trust shop, along with toilets, showers and other facilities. Plenty of walks around the area, but the views from the headlands across the beach are fantastic. A lovely place to go to.

We went to Rhossili bay this week and it just took our breathe away. We walked as far as the coast guard station but decided not to walk to the Worm' s Head as we have both had operations this year and are still not back to full strength. We will be back !
