  • We visited Rhossili Bay because of a friend recommended it and it didn’t disappoint. It’s the most remarkable place I have seen in south Wales so far. I wish I lived closer so I can get there more oft...  more »
  • Wanted to visit the beach. Several people there on a cold morning. You can park in the carpark above but there is a charge. The climb down is steep and it’s harder walking back up. Lovely clean beach.  more »
  • Apparently this is One of the Top 10 beaches IN THE WORLD !! (If you look it up on the Internet!) & been used in lots of filming I believe. It's a vast stretch of curved beach with Welsh Pembrokeshire hillside surrounding it. Large car park higher up with facilities & weaving road down from what I saw. Even though we visited in hot & clement month of August, the weather was foul that day so did not get to see it in all its glory !
  • Beautiful part of the Gower, Swansea. Not Pembrokeshire as I read below...
