The sandy bay of Langland is probably the busiest beach on Gower due to its proximity to Swansea. About ¼ mile wide, it lies east of Snaple Point and is backed by a small shingle bank, a sea wall and promenade. Facilities include a bistro / bar, beach shops, tennis courts and toilets ♿. Parking is at a P&D car park and access to the shore is down steps or a slipway. Lifeguards patrol during the summer, and a complete dog ban operates from 1st May to 30th September. It's a popular surf beach, good at most stages of the tide and generally suitable for beginners. However, it can get very crowded, there are a few rocks to watch for, and localism can be a problem.
The eastern end of the beach is known as Rotherslade, and becomes a small cove at high tide. Additional toilets are available here. A smaller, less crowded cove can be found just to the east.
