1. Land Yachting At The Pendine Sands
on a beach famed for land speed records it seems only right to make the most of its 7 miles length and try your hand at land yachting, zipping along just inches above the sand. Morfa Bay Adventure offer half day experience for those who want the thrill of speed and feel the wind in their hair!
2. Walk The Wales Coastal Path
2018 is the Year of the Sea in Wales so for a quiet appreciation of that fact choose the 4.5 mile Pendine to Amroth stretch of the path for hidden beaches, marine life and rugged beauty. Have your binoculars ready for possible sightings of Cory’s shearwaters and black-throated divers as well as the more common stonechats and gannets. And let your imagination run wild with tales of pirates as you come across caves once used by smugglers to store their contraband.
3. Get On Your Bike
Carmarthenshire has every option for cyclers be it gentle peddlers wanting to stop off for tea and cake or two-wheeled warriors looking for climbs and challenges! There are rides categorised for families, mountain bikers, road cyclers or those looking to cover the first stage of the 2018 Tour of Britain, with almost 30 rides to choose from as well as local cycle events featured.
4. Horses for Courses
Perfect for beginners is a gentle ride through ancient woodland owned by Marros Riding Centre near Pendine. Lasting about an hour the pace allows for nervous riders to be led and take in the trickling streams and wildlife. Those with more experience can go for a beach ride and a trot through the surf, while even toddlers can have a taster ride in the indoor riding school.
5. One-stop activity shop at Pembrey Country Park
With all the activities on offer there may be a case of not enough hours in a day here! The car park opens at 8am for maximising the day and then it’s a case of what first – hire a bike, do the toboggan run, go skiing, hit the beach (all 8 miles of it and Wales’ longest), try out the new orienteering courses, explore the adventure playground, walk the trails or try your hand at archery. Phew! To book visit www.pembreycountrypark.wales
6. Gone Fishing
The county boasts beautiful beaches, private coves and inland waterways, plus miles of clean, tranquil river fishing on the Tywi, Teifi, Taf, Towy and Cothi, so it’s a great location for seasoned fishing-fanatics as well as those wishing to learn more about the sport. Brycoch Farm has a well-stocked lake open to visitors who want to dangle their rod. It’s uncrowded and no swims are too far so no lugging of kit! And there are some good spots for families too. For £5 per day there could be a 16lb carp up for grabs! For more information or to book visit www.southwalescamping.co.uk/fishing
