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.

You can't beat Rhossili it is just absolutely stunning; It's easy to see why it's been named in the Worlds best beaches! If your visiting Wales Rhossili is defiantly a place to visit and Gower in general because the area is very beautiful. The views are magnificent and photo opportunities are plentiful, the water has always been clean and pretty... More

Visited late November weather was kind blue skies but cold wind you could see for miles ( Somerset coast, Lundy etc). Car park is national trust so you must pay if not a member. NT shop is good and the team in there are very helpful. We walked down to Worm head and then down to the beach. The first... More

Great beach, wonderful views. Only thing is the difficulty in getting to it for people with mobility/disability priblems. Worth it though!

Rhossili is STUNNING! You'll need to walk to the beach along a footpath (down hill ... going there!) from the car park. There are also headland walks all the way to Worms Head if the tide is out. The little village also has great cafes, pub, craft shops and a National Trust shop. Fee for car park unless you are... More

We visited the Gower Peninsula in early October. Rhossili Bay was by far our favourite, so much so that we visited several times whilst there. Excellent cliff top walks- for as long or as hard a walk as you like. Views were beautiful and the bay itself was incredible. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Gower area. To note,...

We often visit Rhossili and yesterday (2nd November) was ideal, a glorious, bright sunny day with no wind. We use the bus service (Nos. 118 or 119) which run every hour from Swansea and allow you to see views of Gower which you cannot see from a car. The views of the long sandy beach with the hill behind really... More

Very large bay of fine sand, and great walks above on the headland. Car park £4 a day. Toilets, cafe and shop. Shame they allow dogs on beach

Breathtaking clifftop views. Easy access to the beach. Close hotels where you can stay a night or two. I've been twice and it's never crowded. Why don't people know about this jewel? It's a hidden treasure.

This is a beautiful unspoilt bay. Went here with parents as a child 40 years ago and still as beautiful. Beware you have to park and walk down to the bay which is a bit of a long walk.
