The bay is sheltered from the predominant onshore winds and as such proves a regular spot for both local and visiting surfers, and water sports enthusiasts of every type. Langland is one of the Gower Surfing hot spots, renowned around the UK's surf scene for its many different types of breaks. It is equally popular with less energetic visitors who enjoy exploring rock pools, strolling along the promenade or catching the impressive sunsets. There is good access to the promenade for wheelchair users and also ramped access onto the beach. The promenade is backed with cafes, traditional beach huts, limestone cliffs and a golf course. There are also outdoor showers, tennis courts for hire and an information centre open at peak times. The beach stretches across to Rotherslade Bay, although the two are separated at high tide. The coastal path linking the neighbouring beaches of Rotherslade, Limeslade and Caswell offers many fine views in both directions along the coast.
