“Beach needs rubbish collected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

The view across the bay and along rhossili bay is wonderful. Downside is the tide brings in lots of waste materials, and the day visitors seem reluctant to take away their rubbish. Dog walkers are welcome, but not generally keen on taking away the dog mess, which can be a bit of a hazard. The wide use of the beach by surfers, sand buggies, walkers and day tripers means it can be very busy indeed. Still a lovely location, but there does need to be a concerted effort to beach comb and clear up the rubbish brought in by the tides and keep the sand clean.

“What a sunset on this endless beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

Nothing really to dislike, its an awesome beach for all the family. Sand dunes to hide, play or just relax in. Extensive beach to walk, play and sea for those keen to surf.

“spectacular location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Probably the finest beach I've ever visited & certainly knocks Copa Cabana into a cocked hat!
Try walking from one end to the other, either way 'round. Bracing and scenic with Llangennith at one end and Rhosili at the other. Popular with dog walkers - the only down side to it for me, especially since most think it's OK for dogs to roam free to bother the human faction. Marginally acceptable if they had the animals on a lead & under control & cleaned up after themselves....!!
Fantastic place nevertheless & remains my favorite coastal location.

“Well!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Sand and surf fantastic. Wonderful views. Excellent parking. You can get away from people. A little walk to beach so could be difficult for people with mobility problems

“Unspoilt Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

This has to be one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. There's miles of unspoilt and open beach to be able to walk. The weather in Wales can be changeable so ensure you have wet gear with you as like us you can get caught out and its a long walk to get any form of cover. Lovely peaceful place to visit.
