Tell us what you think about Rhossilli Bay - Hillend Beach

A superb beach owned by the National Trust with excellent bathing and beautiful scenery. Spectacular views of Worms Head promontory. One of the most photographed landmarks in Wales. The Worms Head is accessible at low tide via a rock causeway, but the incoming tide rises quickly and walkers should be aware of getting trapped.
