How is this rated one of the best beaches in the world? It is not even close to being the best in South Wales. Genuinely, it is boring, over-hyped, and nothing spectacular.

Came to Rhossili in August, when Mr Sunak was paying us to eat out! I have travelled to swansea throughout my life but never gone to Rhossili, family in Swansea have always said it is "too far". So this time, baby in tow, my wife and I took a detour on our way home (yes I'm aware its the opposite direction) and visited Rhossili. Sat nav will say its a 45 min drive from Swansea, but it can be longer depending on diversions and traffic on the road. Once we were held up as a cow was crossing the road! It took us approximately an hour, and when we arrived there was traffic getting to the car park. Rhossili has one road in, and thats also the road out, so at peak times it can get very busy and you can easily spend 30-60 minutes getting into the car park. Once parked, there are toilets, pubs and cafes for any of your needs. There are also the sunflower fields, which we did not visit and great views of the bay. I'm told there is an excellent sunset view from here. If you decide to venture down onto the beach it is a slightly treacherous walk down and not for those with any disabilities. The beach is beautiful and sandy. This was a very warm day and the water was still cold, hey, it is Wales after all. You do get used to the cold, even my 6 month old did. It can also get windy, as there is very little to break the Atlantic winds that come across. That can make you feel a little cold, especially if wet. Despite all this, we had a magical time, the views enveloping you are just magnificent. It is said it is the California of the Gower Peninsula, and I'd have to agree. Well worth the detour!

This is a lovely spot to spend a few hours and walk about either down to Worm's Head or to the bay or around the village and headlands. On a clear day you can see for miles.

The most amazing beach, miles of sand to walk on. Walk out to Wormshead at low tide and enjoy the views. Only draw back is the steep walk up and down to the beach, not great for the non fit, it can also be a little narrow in places. Apart from that fabulous

The beach is long and sandy so a great place to relax for a while. Behind the beach there are dunes with lots of birds and other things to enjoy. Walks head off in both directions along the coast. There is the remains of the wreck of the Helvetia on the beach.
