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
- Never swim alone.
- If you get into trouble, stick your hand in the air and shout
- 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

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.
