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.

Beatiful scenic location, that feels like it is in another world! Well worth a visit for an evening of sunset watching although the climb down to the beach and back is hard work if you are not an active person. Car park at the top is charged for but depends on the day whether someone is there to take the £3 payment. Also access to Worms Head when the tide goes out.

UK's no1 Europe's no3 World's no9 - well you have to see it to believe. The views are fantastic -Rhossili cliff ,Worms Head on one side of the 3 mile long beach with golden sand, bones of shipwreck Helvetia (1887) poking out from sand at low tide and sand dunes across the whole beach. Surfing,swimming,para gliding,sailing ,walking ,picnicking on the sand dunes the activities are many. Though you have to walk a little bit on sandy path to reach the beach from parking area it is worth it. At high tide the rocky cause-way to Worms Head is submerged and it becomes an island. The tide approaches fast and precaution has to be taken for walking to Worms Head. The water is clean so also the beach. It is heartening to see people carrying back the litters.

This has got to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK. There is a short walk to the beach but it is so worth it. If you don't want to go down to the beach then you can walk over to Worm's Head. The tidal advice is posted at the life Guard Station. The thing that is so wonderful about this beach is how pristine clean and how noticeable it is to see people returning home with their litter. We love this place!
