Rhossili Bay (West Glamorgan) Reviews
Description:This large picturesque beach forms part of the Gower Penisula.
Newest Review: ... A sat nav will take you by the shortest route, but this won't always be the most direct or the best road route. The road to Rhossili ends at the top of the cliff so you can't get lost. There are a few shops, a post office and a car park, but little else except for the most amazing views you are likely to see in a lifetime. Forget the sun-washed beaches of the Caribbean; the weather here can ... more

My title is inspired by a Dylan Thomas poem, Wales best loved poet and author of the wonderful 'Under milk wood.' But the review is on one of my best-loved beaches, Rhossili on the Gower Peninsula. The line that made me think of light is from a poem about the seasons and is better known by the line-'the boys of summer', documenting his reminiscences of youth. Thomas was born in Swansea and spent many years in this area of Wales, with the Gower beaches some of his favorite places to walk, write or merely think. Around this time of year I am like Bilbo from the book 'The Hobbit', I feel the lure of faraway places and long to do as he did, to open my door, walk ... Read the complete review

I have lived close to Rhossili bay for most of my life and i have to say its one of my favorite beaches. Located at the western most point of the Gower peninsula in South Wales this bay stretches from the north of the peninsula all the way to the south. The Village of Llangenith is at the north of the bay and the beach at that end takes its name. Rhossili is the village on the south of gower and again lends its name to that end of the beach. The beach is 4 miles long, and is bracketed by the island of Burry Holmes on the north side, to the world famous spit of Worms Head to the south. Both are accessable by foot at low tide, across causeways ... Read the complete review

I grew up in Swansea and Rhossili bay is one place which I always go back to visit again and again. Rhossili is one of the beaches which forms the Gower Penisula. It's located near the village of Llangennith and is very popular for surfing, fishing and walking. Rhossili bay is a 3 mile long sandy beach and is the most westerly in the Gower. As it's the most westerly, it brings in atlantic swells which makes consistent waves with the biggest of waves the north end of the beach (Llangennith). These waves attract surfers from all over the UK but please be aware that there are no life guards on this beach. There is a bus service which runs to Rhossili ... Read the complete review

Rhossili Bay is a quite stunning beach and headland, including the rocky outcrop called Worms Head which is accessible for a couple of hours a day depending on the tide. Located about 20 minutes west of Swansea in the Gower Peninsular, I was actually amazed on arrival at this beach at quite how pretty the beach and bay area are. I have never seen such an idylic beach in the UK before and luckily for us the sun was out on the day we visited and with perfect blue skies it really is something else. You actually drive into Rhossili at the top of the headland and the top of a massive hill. On this levelled out bit of land there is a car park where you ... Read the complete review

Rhossili Bay is a stunningly beautiful 3 mile stretch of sand backed by cliffs in the west of the Gower Peninsula near Swansea. There is a privately owned car park which was £2.50 a day in summer 2009 and toilets, pub, cafe and a couple of shops at the top and there are steps down to the beach which are hard work for the less mobile and fit - and very difficult for those with pushchairs. Once down the sands are quite exposed and the tide goes out a long way. This is a reliable surfing beach although better waves can be found at other Gower beaches. There is a National Trust visitor centre on the headland and tide times permitting you can walk across the causeway ... Read the complete review
