(Gower) – Wales
Rhossili Bay has a reputation for being one of the UK’s best beaches, thanks to its breathtaking views, sweeping sunsets and vast golden sands. In fact, on several occasions, it has even been voted as one of the world’s best beaches, and it’s easy to see why. Framed by towering cliff tops offering panoramic views, it’s popular with walkers heading on hikes towards the Worm’s Head peninsula. This is also a dog-friendly beach, and is popular with surfers too. However, if you’re travelling with little ones, this spot might not be the best choice due to the steep walk down to the beach itself.
