Rhossili

Rhossili is on the southwestern tip of the Gower Peninsula in Swansea, and it is home to a fantastic beach and rugged limestone cliffs. If you're heading to Rhossili, I would recommend going for a walk along the headland to enjoy the dramatic views and say hello to the sheep dotted along the cliff tops (this is Wales, after all!).

In the distance you can see the Worm's Head, an island which marks the most westerly tip of Gower. It was named "Wurm" by Viking invaders, meaning "dragon."
For some bizarre reason, I didn't take any photos of the beach, which has been voted Britain's best beach, the 3rd best beach in Europe, and the 9th best beach in the world by TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice.

Oops.

So on this occasion I will just have to leave it to your imagination (or you could google it if you're curious!).

Rhossili Bay has 3 miles of sand and coastline, and my boyfriend loves to go there for a surf. I will certainly be going back there soon to take some more photos to share with you :-)

Aside from the beautiful beach that I didn't take any photos of, it's a great spot to watch the sun go down...
 So...when are you planning a trip to Rhossili?

  2. Wow! You captured that sunset photo perfectly! This place is somewhat familiar to Marlboro Island here in the Philippines. :)
