The 3  km beach stretches from Burry Holmes to Worms Head and is popular with fisherman, surfers and swimmers.

    The clifftop has excellent walks from the National Trust visitor centre to the old coastguard lookout with views out to Worms Head.

    Facilities include toilets at carpark and there are plenty of places to eat in the nearby village of Rhossili with views of the beach stretching out into the distance.
