Wales boasts some of the UK’s finest coastal landscapes, from dramatic cliffs and sea stacks to sandy bays and blue lagoons. People come from near and far to walk the Pembrokeshire Coast Path or to explore the dunes and cliffs of Anglesey. But one of the lesser-known gems of the Welsh coast is Rhossili Bay on the southwestern tip of the Gower Peninsula. A wide sandy beach backed by grassy dunes, Rhossili Bay does feel slightly out of this world – no wonder it was used as the setting of New Earth in Doctor Who!
In 2014, Rhossili Bay was voted the best beach in the UK, the third best in Europe, and ninth best in the world. Pretty cool, right? That’s why we’ve decided to celebrate Rhossili Bay with this stunning tea towel showing the view along the beach from the grassy headland, with Rhossili Down rising up to the right – a beautiful scene to enjoy as you dry the dishes!
