Spent so long on the island enjoying the sunshine and peace and quiet I gave myself not enough time to visit Worms Head. Another Day.Dusty29/04/2015
From car park to E. Good sandy track through dunes to shoreline. Tide coming in but plenty of time to pop up onto this little tidal island to bag the tump and have some lunch. Some ruined buildings and earthworks lower down on landward side.jonglew23/11/2014
While at Swansea UniBobHancock01/05/1998
Climbed whilst leader at St Madoc Youth camp, and a second time with friends on holiday. A tidal island, not as good as Worms Head, but still a great situation and superb view of Rhossili beach.pdantic03/08/1984
