Rhossili Bay

Rhossili Bay

An ever-present on any list of ‘best beaches……’, Rhossili’s dog friendly (year-round) sweeping 3 miles of golden sand lives up to its reputation. The National Trust Car Park in Rhossili is your starting point for the 75m drop down onto the beach via a signposted path from which you can swim, walk, see the Helvetia shipwreck (low tide) or continue on foot (or up and across via Rhossili Down) to neighbouring Llangennith beach.

There are no lifeguards at Rhossili Bay.

Staying up the top and walking past the public toilets, the National Trust gift shop and tourist information brings you onto the clifftop path which takes you out to the Old Coastguard’s Station which is now operated by the National Coastal Institution as a set of eyes and ears to support the Coastguard. It is from the station that you can, tides and timings permitted (be extra vigilant), venture across onto the spectacular Worm’s Head – the most westerly point of the Gower Peninsula.

Adjacent to the car park, The Worms Head Hotel and The View Café, Bar & Kitchen each serve great food and local beer and have some the best views from their terraces you’re likely to experience in a long time! There are also a few other places to grab a coffee, light snack or ice-cream within 150m of the car park.
