Where to park

There is a pay and display car park at Langland with easy access to the coast path and the beach. SA3 4SQ. 

General information

  • This is a short, easy walk suitable for young children. There is a ramp where buggies can be taken onto Langland beach.
  • Best time for fossil hunting and rock-pooling is at low-tide.
  • Use our ‘Look it up’ pages to identify and learn more about the things you find and see on your walk.


  • There is a lifeguard service during the summer months.
  • Dogs are not allowed on the beach between May 1st and September 30th.
  • There are several cafes on the seafront.

Where to walk

  • From the car park, walk between the beach huts and down a few steps to the seafront. If you wish to avoid the steps there is a lane between the car parks which leads to the seafront. There is a ramp to the beach opposite the shop on the seafront.
  • On the beach, explore the strandline and the rock pools. There are always interesting things to find. Use our ‘Seashore’ and ‘Rockpools’ pages to identify the things that you find.
  • Remember! If you find any creatures that are alive, look at them, identify them, take photos of them but please leave them where you find them.
  • If the tide is out, you can walk along the beach to Rotherslade. Facing the sea, turn to your left and walk along the beach until you reach the small cove of Rotherslade.
  • If the tide is in, you can walk to Rotherslade along the coast path beside the beach huts but there are steps down to Rotherslade.
  • At Rotherslade, look carefully all over the rocks to see if you can find any fossils. Look at our ‘Fossil’ page to help you identify them.
  • From Rotherslade, walk up the steps, turn left onto the coast path and walk back to the car park. To avoid the steps you can return to the car park along the beach.
