The photo above shows Burry Holms from Llangennith Burrows.
Burry Holms becomes an island when the tide is in, but is accessible for
approximately 2 hours either side of low tide. There are ruins of a medieval
monastic settlement on the island and each year there are special religious
ceremonies held there.
The beach itself lies at the Western end of Rhossili
Bay and is a sandy, sprawling beach backing onto sand dunes. Very
popular with surfers.
The footpath leads North East to Bluepool
The beach is a 10 to 15 minute walk from either car park.
