Gower Peninsula


Fall Bay




Fall Bay is one of the more difficult Gower bays to access. The climb down to the beach is unsuitable for children as it involves a steep path cut from the rocks with boulders to clamber over before you reach the sand.

At Rhossili Village Hall There is a small car park for which there is an honesty box with a suggested £1 donation. The path to the right leads through fields and farmland and then a descends by wooden steps ( or try the old metal ladder) to a steep grassy bank which affords a dramatic view of the bay and surrounding cliffs. In spring the walk is especially pleasing as the fields may be home to lambs and the yellow gorse is in bloom.

The beach dips quite significantly so it is not an ideal bay for swimming but its seclusion and beautiful location more than make up for the trek down and somewhat rough swimming conditions.

There are some unusual rock formations to see as well as a few small caves.

A footpath leads eastwards to Mewslade Bay or west to Tears Point, Worm’s Head and Rhossili Bay.
