The Carmarthenshire Coast Path links directly to the 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path to the West, which in turns links up with the 60-mile Ceredigion Coast Path to the north. All are part of the Wales Coast Path which runs for 870 miles all round the Welsh coast.

Carmarthen Bay is one of the most important conservation areas in Wales. Running from the Loughor Estuary in the East to Telpyn Point near Pendine in the West, the trail
allows visitors to explore varied and interesting stretches of coastline.

The beaches on the way are glorious and varied: Pendine and Cefn Sidan sit opposite each other at the mouth of the 3-river estuary, vying for supremacy as major stretches of sand reaching way, way into the distance. Llansteffan and Laugharne have beaches as well as picturesque villages and their ancient castles are an additional attraction.

For bird watchers, the Carmarthenshire Coast Path has to be one the most exciting areas in Wales, and, of course, you’ll know that winter is the time to spot a huge variety of waders and wildfowl as they gather to feed on the mudflats and marshes. Visit our Bird Watching in West Wales pages for more information.  Don’t miss the WWT Wetland Centre in Llanelli.
