**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.

Wonderful place to visit 5 star beach and views. Can be a bit windswept but great for families with children and dogs.

I am biased in as much that I have grown up and always lived reasonably near to this beach. Situated at the western extremity of the Gower Peninsula, (the first UK designated AONB) it is a stunning location regardless of seasonal weather. From the NT...More

If you mean Llangennith, yes go towards the caravans at Hillend, across the dunes and then it is a beautiful walk along the beach. Take extreme care in very hot weather as there is virtually no shade! It would be perfect for... More
