Where to start! Rhossili Bay has been voted Wales' Best Beach 2018 and 3rd in the UK in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards AND it has it has been in the top 10 for the last 6 years! The awards cabinet is really filling up, as Rhossili has also been described as ‘The supermodel of British beaches’ by The Independent and has also won accolades from UK Travel Writers and awards for being the best spot to have a picnic! And not forgetting our four legged friends, The Times nominated Rhossili as ‘The UK's No.1 dog-friendly beach’. So, it’s pretty much universally agreed that you won’t find a more beautiful spot in the UK!

So what’s all the fuss about? 3 miles of sandy shore, encompassing one of Gower’s most famous landmarks, Worms Head; watersports and in particular surfing, benefit from the Atlantic swell, whilst sand-castle builders benefit from the fine golden sand. The views are incomparable and are best enjoyed from one of the many walking routes, which feature the beach, Worm’s Head and the cliffs, you may even see some basking seals or dolphins playing in the surf. And of course, Rhossili Bay is part of the Gower Coast Path.

Rhossili Bay is accessed via steps from the small village of Rhossili. It is a fair way down, and unfortunately there is no access by wheelchair this way. The breathtaking views are definitely worth the walk. Catch it on a sunny day and don’t forget your camera! Or alternatively, take a stroll along the relatively flat route towards the Coastwatch Centre and enjoy views across the Bay and out towards Worm's Head.

Parking (undergoing improvements https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/rhossili-and-south-gower-coast/features/car-park-improvements-at-rhossili), public transport and refreshments are all 400m from the bay.

Stay Safe!
When crossing over to Worm's Head, please watch the tide and report to the Coastwatch Centre.
