Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: **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.

“Must visit place if you visiting Cardiff Wales”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

If you are planning a visit to Cardiff, you must plan a visit to see Rhossili Bay...pristine and beautiful and wonderful hospitality of the restaurants there. One just needs to walk around and admire and be one with nature. Vast expanse of beach and blue sea. Take a walk to Caswell Bay...another great walk and sight to behold.

“The Best Pub in the World”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

I've been once before but this was the perfect day,blue skies,bright sunshine.We drove to The Worms Head Hotel at Rhossili Bay.Plenty of parking and walked into the Hotel had a drink and chose some basic fayre from the menu.We sat outside and enjoyed the absolutely stunning vistas while eating.I didn't know there was such a thing as Welsh Ribeye but they were absolutely delicious.My wife had a really fresh piece of fish in a light batter and my Son a huge Burger.We then walked down to the Coastguard Station and back and then had Tea and Scones before making our way back home.A beautiful day.

“Awesome beach”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

This has to be your number one destination when visiting the Gower. The beach is unbelievably huge and a walk up and down it is very, very enjoyable, if not a bit hard at the end making your way back up to the NT car park. Don't miss this amazing place.

“A photograph is worth 100 words..”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

and the path[on the left] down to Worms Head doesn't do justice to the magnificence of the bay with the worn remains of the Helvetia still sticking up out of the sand. I'll have to see how to add a better image to this review!!
