Worms Head to Burry Holms
Worms Head marks the southern boundary of Rhossili Bay, a 3 mile long bay open to the western waves,
popular with surfers. Worms Head is probably the most famous landmark of Gower, a serpent shaped tidal island famed
for its sunsets. The southern half of the bay is backed by Rhossili Down, the highest hill in Gower. The northern
half is backed by sand dunes, known as Llangenith Burrows on the western side and Broughton Burrows on the eastern
side. The Bay terminates with another tidal island, the small Burry Holms, very close to shore but easily cut off.
Although this is a somewhat wilder area, there is still access for tourists and holidaymakers.
