Attraction Information

Fancy a day at the best beach in Europe? You won’t have to go far, in fact, it’s right here in the UK! Rhossili Bay is the only European beach voted into the top 10 beaches in the WORLD by Suitcase in 2017. Sounds like a quality place to bring the kids, right?

Enjoy three miles of sandy shores and crystal clear water where you can do all your favourite beach activities - from swimming and playing with a beach ball, to building sandcastles and topping up your tan. Your kids love stories about pirates and adventurers? Here’s something exciting - at low tide, you can see the remains of a 19th-century shipwreck from the beach! Feeling adventurous yourself? Cross the rocky causeway to the tidal island of Worms Head, where you can spot grey seals.

Up for a bit of exploring? Overlooking the beach is Old Rectory, the most popular National Trust holiday cottage, so why not pay it a visit while you’re there. Love photography? Venture to Rhossili Down, the highest point on Gower for stunning views across the sea, all the way to West Wales, Lundy Island and the north Devon coast.

  • Take the kids to the best beach in the UK
  • See the remains of a real-life shipwreck
