One of the most beautiful beaches, rated as being in the Top 10 Beaches in the UK.. Wonderful landscape surrounding with walking trails above the beach that gives you an awesome view of Rhossili and Worms Head Point..

We've walked along the beach at high tide and low tide; luckily always in hot sunny weather; mostly sand. We created shell art on the beach and enjoyed ourselves. Some bad smell from pipe on on occasion.
