Llanrhidian Sands is the Gower side of the Loughor Estuary.

The fresh water river Loughor flows down the centre of the estuary, but the sea reaches all the way to Penclawdd’s cockle beds at high tide.

What there is to offer:

  • parking in the villages bordering the Estuary (Llanrhidian, Crofty, Penclawdd)
  • birdwatching
  • spectacular views

The salt marshes stretch from Crofty to Llanrhidian, where The Groose (the Western end of Llanrhidian marsh) is located.

Whiteford Sands lies directly to the West of Llanrhidian Sands.

Tour the Gower Coastline:
Go clockwise | Go anticlockwise
