Located near the village of the same name in Swansea, Wales, Rhossili Beach is a three mile long sandy beach along a bay set against sand dunes. There are two tidal islands that are accessible only during low tide found in the bay, Worm’s Head at the southern end and Burry Holms to the north. You can also see the remains of several shipwrecks during low tide.

Despite its popularity among surfers and paragliders, Rhossili has maintained its unspoilt beauty and tranquillity making it the perfect escape from a bustling city or town.
