Lined by a long row of stripey beach huts, Langland Bay is one of the Gower Surfing hot spots and is renowned in the UK's surf scene for its variety of breaks, from gentle point breaks to the heavy left handers. The bay's shelter from the predominant onshore wind makes it a regular spot for families and the local surf and paddle board community and a must visit when in Gower.

Langland beach stretches across to Rotherslade Bay, although the two are cut off at high tide. Sweeping coastal paths offer breathtaking views across the Bristol Channel and link Caswell Bay to the west and to the east, Rotherslade, Limeslade Bay and Bracelet Bay.
Rotherslade has its own cafe and toilet facilities, as well its own row of stripey beach huts, and is a great spot from which to stop and enjoy an ice cream or coffee and take in the great view of the Langland headland. Set up on the cliff top is the Langland bay golf club which achieved Welsh Golf Club of the year in 2013. There are also outdoor tennis courts available to book nearby.
If you're feeling peckish during your visit to Langland, the Surfside Cafe sells hot and cold snacks and ice creams. Langland Brasserie, serving a modern british cuisine is also set up from the beach and offers a wider breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. There are also two small shops offering snacks and seaside gifts and toys.
Step free access from the road to the beach and two pay and display car parks make this bay location accessible to all. The beach is well facilitated, with outdoor showers, public toilets, St John Ambulance and an Information Centre open during the peak season of May to September. A lifeguard also operates on this beach during this time. Dogs are welcome on this beach from 1st October to 30th April.
