Llangennith Beach on Gower Peninisula, is probably the best surfing beach on the Gower, due to large waves coming in from the Atlantic Ocean. Llangennith is at the northern end of Rhossili Bay. The bay stretches for over three miles.
There are several surfing schools providing lessons during the summer. The beach is backed by magnificent sand dunes.. WARNING: There is no Lifeguard patrol on this beach, do not swim in big surf as there are strong undertows. There is easy access to the beach, ample car parking and surfers café nearby.
There are good walks north-west to the coast over the sand dunes of Llangennith and Broughton Burrows. Signposts to watch out for include Blue Pool, a rock pool, which, in the right sea and sky conditions, takes a deep blue colour; the natural archway called Three Chimneys; and Culver Hole, a bone cave.
At the north end there is the island of Burry Holms. If you decide to walk out onto Burry Holms please check the tide times carefully and allow enough time to get back.
