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 arrived at midday just after the rain. We slowly made our way down to the beach through the steep footpath, it can be challenging if you're not fit but manageable. We timed our visit when the tide was out so we had miles and...More

If you like quiet 3 mile beaches with a superb view of an island with a beautiful green cliff backdrop this is the place for you. Access is down a fairly steep path from Rhossili, where there are facilities but once you leave the village...More

You need to weather to enjoy this bay as I am guessing on a wet and windy day it loses some of its appeal. We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day. We are National Trust members so parking was free but I don't...More

There's so much more to this area than just a beach. It's a lovely place to visit with ample parking opposite the Worm's Head Hotel. The hotel and the local church are each worth a visit for either food or history, and the Head itself...More

Excellent views a short walk from the National Trust car park. A walk down to the beach will bring you to a shipwreck which is best viewed at low tide.

Fantastic for all make sure you bring a picnic. We didn’t venture onto the beach as quite a steep climb back up. However walked along the cliffs which is accessible to all including wheelchair users.

Absolutely! Sorry about the delay in responding; despite having notifications turned on for questions, I didn’t receive a notification! Whenever I’ve been there, dogs have loved the beach and have never been a problem ☺️
