Rhossili Bay Beach, Swansea, Wales (with Map & Photos)

Coastal Rhossili Bay has been voted Best Wales Beach in the Travelers' Choice Awards. And this award is well deserved. There is everything for a comfortable stay: five kilometers of the purest golden sand, picturesque views of green meadows, sand dunes and a small island right on the horizon.

Rhossili Bay attracts a huge number of surfers every year, but it is also ideal for swimming. Also, nature lovers annually come to its surroundings: in addition to contemplating a gorgeous view from steep cliffs and green dunes, here you can watch dolphins and fur seals swimming. A highlight of the local landscape emerges from the water at low tide: a small part of a ship that sank nearby in the mid-19th century.

Like most British beaches, Rhossili Bay is also beautiful in winter: the freezing ocean breeze will not interfere with your walk along the coast.
