About Rotherslade Bay

Rotherslade Bay and Langland Bay join together about 2 hours after hightide.  Rotherslade is a smaller and more intimate beach area than Langland. There is limited parking and access to the beach is via steps down to the beach from the Surfside cafe. The cafe over looks the bay and dogs are welcome here.  If you are unable to find parking near to Rotherslade then you could consider the two large pay and display car parks at Langland.  It is approximately a 10 minute walk along the main cliff path from the car parks at Langland to Rotherslade, or if the tide is low enough, then you can access Rotherslade via the beach.  If there is a moderate to large swell running at high tide then you need to enter the water with caution, especially if you are not a strong swimmer, there can be currents and strong under tows.
