Rhossili Bay
Rhossili, Gower

At the most western part of the Gower peninsula, the bay is steeped in the history of shipwreckers, plus the prominent wreck of the Hevetia laying testement to weather conditions. Worms Head is arguably the most photographed place in Gower, and becomes an island at high tide.

How to get here:

»

Road: M4 - Exit the M4 at junction 47, then head south on the A483 towards Swansea. Turn right, onto the A4216, and then right onto the A4118. Follow this until you reach Scurlage, then turn right onto the B4247 - this leads to Rhossili and the cliffs. +
