At low tide there is a huge expanse of beach. It is possible to walk across the bay to Llangennith or even cross onto the Worms Head. Keep an eye on the tide though, to ensure that you don’t become cut off. There is always some sand, even at high tide. It is very popular with surfers. Many different birds nest on the cliffs, so don’t forget your binoculars!
N.B. There is a very steep walk down to the beach so it may not be suitable for pushchairs or anyone who has difficulty walking.


From Rhossili Bay, you can walk East to Fall Bay or across the beach to Llangennith Burrows.
