Rhossili Bay, South Wales

Rhossili Bay is the most westerly bay along the Gower Peninsula in Wales. The three mile long sandy beach is referred to by locals as Llangennith Sands and is backed by sand dunes known as the Warren. The dunes were once home to a church and houses but these have been abandoned and lie buried under the sand. Behind the beach is Rhossili Down, the highest point on the Gower Peninsula. At the north of the bay is Burry Holms and at the south is Worms Head, a small tidal island. At low tide you can glimpse the wreck of Helvetia which beached there on a winter’s night in 1887.
