Horse Riding at Rhossili Beach allowfullscreen&gt; Rhossili on the Gower Peninsula, is the winner of numerous awards for the best British beach and the best sunsets in the world. Most recently, Rhossili was the first beach to be awarded Britain’s Best Beach by TripAdvisor's Travellers’ Choice for the second year running, not to mention the 3rd best beach in Europe and 9th best in the world! It’s a fantastic place for walking short sections of the Wales Coast Path. If you head in the opposite direction to the beach, you can scramble out to Worm's Head which looks like a huge basking Welsh dragon (the name itself 'Wurm' means 'dragon' and was named by those pesky Viking raiders.) It’s accessible at low tide via a causeway and makes an invigorating walk – though be sure to check on the tides at the Coastwatch Centre before you attempt to cross. If your return journey is cut off by high tide, don’t attempt to swim back to shore. Horse Riding at Rhossili Beach You can ride on horseback for miles along the beach. Watch out for the wreck of the Helvetia which was shipwrecked here in 1887, it’s a Gower landmark. If you carry on to Burry Holms, a small tidal islet at the end of the beach, you can make out the remains of a medieval chapel half buried in the sand. Where to stay: There are lots of beach side self catering cottages and places to stay nearby. Use our Accommodation search to find your perfect Rhossili retreat.
