Rhossilli Bay

Where to start!

Rhossili has been voted Wales Best Beach 2017 and one of the UK’s top 10 beaches for 5 years running in the Tripadvisor Travellers choice awards. It was the first beach to be awarded Britain’s Best Beach for two years running. The Times nominated Rhossili as the ‘UK’s no.1 dog-friendly beach’ and UK Travel Writers the best spot for a picnic.

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, here is no access by wheelchair this way. The breath-taking 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.
