Rhossili is located on the most western edge of the Gower Peninsula in South Wales. It is close to the villages of Llanmadoc, Llangennith, Cheriton, Port Eynon, Oxwich and Reynoldston. The beach of Rhossili Bay lies north west of the village and has superb views of Worm's Head. It is a perfect spot for rock pooling, fishing, surfing, bodyboarding and swimming.
Being the most westerly of the Gower beaches it takes the full force of the Atlantic swells and provides one of the best surfing bays on the peninsula. Bathers and families will appreciate its miles of golden sands. Walkers are well catered for with trails criss-crossing the beautiful landscape, with walks to Worms Head, the nearby sandy coves of Fall Bay and Mewslade Bay, and the sands of Broughton Bay and Whiteford Point. The parish church of St Mary's dates back to circa 1200. The building contains a lepers' window, where people affected with the disease could see the altar, a scratch-dial in the south porch and graves as old as 1784.
