Langland Bay is a sandy beach, about ¼ mile wide and backed by a sea wall and promenade. It is probably the busiest beach on the Gower, due to its proximity to Swansea. It's a popular surfing location, with several good breaks in different areas of the bay and best around the low tide period with a north or westerly wind. Lifeguards patrol this beach from the second week in May until the last week in August and a complete dog ban operates from 1st May to 30th September. There are good facilities including toilets, a cafe, beach shops and tennis courts. Parking is at a P&D car park.
The eastern end of the beach is known as Rotherslade, and becomes a small cove at high tide. There are further toilets and a cafe here. Further to the east at low tide are some smaller sandy coves.
