Overview
More
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 car park is free to NT members during the day. Non members are currently charged £5 per day (car). There is no overnight parking/camping. 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 thoroughly enjoyed our bracing walk from The Worms Head end of Rhossili Bay to the far at Spaniard rocks, and back!

Pictures underestimate the true beauty of this place! Stunning views, amazing beach! A must visit! The walk down from car park is amazing..... the walk back up is challenging! I’m 6 months pregnant and managed, but glad it had some stopping points!

Stay for the day. Take a picnic and sit back and enjoy the view and let the world go by at a slow easy pace for a change.

Absolutely beautiful beach, loads of (paid) parking. Quite a walk down to the beach (don't do it wearing flip-flops!) and longer on the way back up! So take everything with you as you probably won't fancy the trek up and down too many times! No...More

Rhossili Bay is beautiful. There are good, straight forward, walks to the headland and the beach. There are huge car parks and, despite confusion online, if you are a National Trust member you can park for free. If you are not, half a day costs...More

I haven’t seen any signs that you can’t but that doesn’t mean I’m right. I’ve seen people with bbqs going down towards Llangennith side of the beach and as long as you take your rubbish back with you..

No the beach is free. The car park is national trust so you have to pay unless you’re a member.
