Langland Bay

Langland Bay is a popular coastal holiday beach. The Bay is surrounded by bright beach huts which are all privately owned, but give the beach great character! The sandy beach has another smaller beach called Rotherslade Bay which becomes isolated at high tide. The big steps here are a sun-worshipper's dream, a really sheltered sun trap.

Langland Bay is home to 6 very well looked after tennis courts. Langland Bay Golf Club also looks over the Bay, this 18 hole course can be challenging even for the best - with unpredictable coastal conditions! The Golf Club won Welsh Golf Club of the year in 2013.

Anyway.. back to the beach, popular with surfers - at a low tide Crab Island (reef) provides one of the best shaped and most powerful right hand waves in the country; however, many are put off by the fact that the wave breaks onto the exposed reef, so it is considered dangerous for novice surfers. Less able surfers might be better off trying 'Saga Point', 'Middle Reef' or 'Rotherslade Lefts' but there is always a danger from rocks so no head first dismounts people!

We recommend the Chai-tea Lattes at the Surf Side Cafes https://www.facebook.com/pages/Surfside-Cafe-official-site/108686775840951 for a post-surf warm up. Plus these cafes are dog-friendly too, a rareity on Gower :-)
