Llanrhidian Sands is the Gower side of the Loughor Estuary.

Tour the Gower Coastline: Go clockwise | Go anticlockwise

What there is to offer:

  • parking in the villages bordering the Estuary (Llanrhidian, Crofty, Penclawdd)
  • birdwatching
  • spectacular views


The fresh water river Loughor flows down the centre of the estuary, but the sea reaches all the way to Penclawdd’s cockle beds at high tide.

The salt marshes stretch from Crofty to Llanrhidian, where The Groose (the Western end of Llanrhidian marsh) is located.
Whiteford Sands lies directly to the West of Llanrhidian Sands.
