Rhossili Bay Beach

Rhossili Bay beach is situated on the western tip of the Gower Peninsula with views across the Bristol Channel and towards Pembrokeshire. Rhossili has spectacular cliffs, burial cairns and mysterious shipwrecks visible at low tide, so there is plenty for the whole family to do and see. The 3  km beach stretches from Burry Holmes to Worms Head and is popular with fishermen, surfers and swimmers.

The clifftop has excellent walks from the National Trust visitor centre to the old coastguard lookout with views out to Worms Head.

Facilities include toilets at the car park and there are plenty of places to eat in the nearby village of Rhossili with views of the beach stretching out into the distance.
