Rhossili Bay is allegedly the finest beach in Britain and one of the best in the world. Whilst I am not going to disagree that this is indeed a stunning beach I think there is an awful lot of competition and it has quite a lot to live up to. So, just what makes Rhossili beach so great? Well, three miles of golden sand in the unspoilt setting of South Wales' Gower Peninsula is a good start. This was the first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the United Kingdom and this wild landscape certainly lives up to this. To one end of the bay is "the Beacon", the highest point on the Gower, to the other end, "the Worm's Head", a small tidal island that can be reached at low tide.
Catch Rhossili Bay on the right day, when the sun is shining and a big Atlantic swell is running and you too well see what all the fuss is about.
