Overview

More
**The car park is currently being redeveloped. The site remains open, but has a reduced capacity as a result.** 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.

What a truly magnificent place, any time of day or time of year this is a magical place. As you look at the landscape it transforms throughout the day and is a truly awe inspiring piece of the country.

We are lucky enough to be able to visit Rhossili regularly, but it never ceases to draw your breath away, as it is constantly changing due to weather and tides. The redevelopment of the National Trust car park is now complete mimicking the adjacent medieval...More

Breathtaking views ,clean long sandy beach .may be a challenge to get to for old or disabled people as the climb down and back up is steep and very high

Views are to die for. Sunsets are the best to be seen as it is facing west. Big surfing beach down below the cliffs. Pub/restaurant, cafes and gift shops there. So much to see and do. Brilliant for walkers and for a family day out.

Britain’s first designated area of outstanding beauty and voted in several polls as one of the best beaches in the world. For very good reason it it a wonderful beautiful healthy walk. A must do if on the Gower in Wales.

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 ☺️

As others have said, 5-10 down and 10-20 back again from the National trust car park. It is possible to avoid the few steps by walking via the Warren track from behind the church. Since the original steps were washed away a... More
