Rhossili Bay is the premier beach destination of the Gower peninsular, the UK's first designated area of outstanding natural beauty - and it's not hard to see why. The beach itself has been held as the 3rd best beach in Europe and 9th best in the world! Quite an accolade when you think that the competition includes Australia, Bermuda and Brazil.
You will find 3 miles of sandy shore, encompassing one of Gower’s most famous landmarks, Worms Head. Watersports, 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.
