Gower Beaches > Llangennith

Llangenith looking towards Rhossili Copyright © 2003 Julian Herbert

Llangennith is the surfing capital of Gower, mainly due to the consistent swells that pour in from the mighty Atlantic Ocean, and is situated at the northern end of Rhossili Bay. The bay stretches for over three miles, here you can witness the power of the sea pounding onto the shore, wandering along the water's edge. If you have never tried surfing this is the place to give it a go, there are several surfing schools providing lessons during the summer. The beach is backed by magnificent sand dunes at the north end there is the island of Burry Holms. WARNING: There is no Lifeguard patrol on this beach, do not swim in big surf as there are strong undertows. Before you walk out onto Burry Holms please check the tide times carefully and allow enough time to get back.
