The fantastic five km of Rhossili beach

Scroll down to content

View of Rhossili Bay, Gower

  • Rhossili is the most fabulous beach on the tip of Gower Peninsula near Swansea in West Glamorgan, South Wales, UK.
  • It stretches for a fantastic five kilometres.
  • It is backed by Rhossili Down at the Worms Head end in the south; and by the Llangennith sand dunes at the Bury Holms end in the north.
  • Rhossili has a sandy shore overlying pebbles and small boulders at the top of the beach; has a very wide tidal range and great waves. It is famous for its surfing.
  • The shape and pattern of the beach sediments is constantly changing.
  • It is subject to extreme weather and tides because there is nothing but sea between Rhossili and South America.
  • Lots of things get washed up – including seashore and marine organisms and various kinds of flotsam and jetsam.

  1. What a beautiful photograph Jessica. The colors are gorgeous and everything looks so fresh and alive. I thought your close up images of shells were lovely but so is this landscape photo.

    It’s nice to see that there is someone else on the planet as thrilled as I am with what can be discovered along the seashore.

    With all best wishes,


  2. Hello, Amy-Lynn
    Thank you for your kind comments about my blog pictures. I am pleased that I have managed to convey my enthusiasm for the wonder of the seashore. I visited your own site straight away and I have immediately added it to my Favourites. I am very impressed by both the photographs and the art work. I have only had a very quick look right now but will return to explore your fascinating site at my leisure. We seem to share the same joy and philosophy in nature.
