**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.

Nice walking along the cliffs to Worms Head and a lovely big beach. The National Trust car park is very expensive. If you get there early enough, park in the church car park and make a donation.

Amazing beach with stunning views. I spent the entire day there on my own and was more than happy and entertained. I was lucky enough to see a wild seal too!!

The massive beach amongst dramatic cliffs and coastline is STUNNING. A compulsory visit if you go to Wales. It is a lovely walk and a great place for a picnic or to read a book.

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

If you are driving, i would suggest take both. Carrier for the beach, as others also pointed out, it is a steep slope downwards from the car park, a good 20 mins if you are average fitness level. Pram is useless here... More

If you mean Llangennith, yes go towards the caravans at Hillend, across the dunes and then it is a beautiful walk along the beach. Take extreme care in very hot weather as there is virtually no shade! It would be perfect for... More
