    Pendine Sands Beach Information

    Pendine Sands beach is an 11 km (7 mile) stretch of flat sand within Carmarthen Bay that stretches from Gilman Point and the village of Pendine in the west to Laugharne Sands in the east. The beach can have some parts closed due to MoD restrictions.

    Due to the beaches length and flat firm sand, it was used for speed record attempts, with Malcolm Campbell (1924), J. G. Parry-Thomas (1926 & 27), Forresti in Djelmo (1927), Donald Campbell in 2000 and Guy Martin’s bicycle record.

    The size and flat nature of the beach make this beach very popular with land yachting, kite-buggying, power kiting and horse riding.

    Just to the West, you have the small bay of Morfa Bychan which is well worth the short walk.

    Facilities at the beach and in the village include parking, toilets, cafe, pubs, beach shops and seasonal lifeguards.

    Pendine Sands Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
