A straight, sandy beach, at low tide almost half a mile wide, backed by the sand dunes of Pendine Burrows.

From the beach there are clear views across Carmarthen Bay to the Gower and Tenby. The beach is owned by the Ministry of Defence, which has a firing range nearby. Sections of the beach are therefore sometimes closed to the public.

  • Always read and obey the safety signs, usually found at the entrance to the beach. These will help you avoid potential hazards on the beach and identify the safest areas for swimming.
  • When on a lifeguarded beach, find the red and yellow flags and always swim or bodyboard between them - this area is patrolled by lifeguards.
  • Never swim alone.
  • If you get into trouble, stick your hand in the air and shout for help.
  • If you see someone in difficulty, don't attempt a rescue. Tell a lifeguard, or, if you can't see a lifeguard, call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.
  • If you are hiring equipment for a surfsport, try to do so from a member of the Surf Hire Safety Scheme. Scheme members check equipment regularly for damage, rent out equipment suitable to your ability and offer safety advice for the local area.

Remember: Always clean up after your dog!

No open fires in Park or beach.  No bbqs on beach or dunes or in woodland

Please keep to paths during spring and summer to avoid disturbance to nesting birds.  As birds use the beach and nearby estuary to rest, especially at high tide, please prevent dogs from chasing birds.
