Nature has almost on its own created a wildlife paradise at Mynydd Mawr. Designated BBQ area within Mynydd Mawr Woodland Park.
BBQ's are only allowed on the picnic tables in Caio and Cenarth forests and the woods in Brechfa forest known as Byrgwm and Abergorlech. There are BBQ grills built on to the picnic tables for the general public to use disposable BBQ's. We do not allow BBQ's in any other forests due to the danger that fire may cause damage to the trees.
Millennium Coastal Park, Llanelli
In just over 10 years, the 22 kilometres of coastline along the Loughor estuary has been transformed into a unique array of tourist attractions, wildlife habitats and leisure facilities. The Coastal Park is blessed with several stretches of golden shoreline including Machynys, Llanelli Beach and Burry Port Sands (which actually has a choice of two beaches - one either side of the harbour!). Situated in the heart of the Coastal Park, is the newest marina in Wales with a 450 berth facility. Burry Port Marina offers boat owners the perfect mix of leisure facilities.

A beach of two halves. Look west and you will find dramatic cliffs with a wealth of rock pools and wild cliff top paths (interestingly this area was used, during world War II, for practising the "D-Day" landings!). To the east, one of Wales’ longest sandy beaches, home to historic land speed records and a part time MOD firing range, stretches into the distance. At the far end of this expanse, huge cockle beds are harvested all year round, reflecting the pure nature of the Carmarthen Bay waters.
Llansteffan Beach & Scotts Bay
Another of Wales’ famous castles, the 12th century Norman built stronghold is obviously not so strong today but is still known for its monumental Great Gatehouse and with views over the confluence of the Rivers Tywi and Taf that are as dramatic as ever. The village was once a fashionable holiday destination for Victorian and Edwardian folk from the towns and why not venture down the steep slope from the castle, step over crunchy spent cockle shells and onto the secluded sandy beach of Scott’s Bay.
Please be responsible beach users - take away any rubbish!
