Summer as it should be
In summer, Carmarthenshire is bursting with life, but the endless days don’t mean we are bursting at the seams. Even in summer, you’ll find the space and the time to make the most of a visit. As the summer hoards head elsewhere to overcrowded resorts, Carmarthenshire remains serene.
Even on the warmest days there’s room to yourself on our beaches. But if lazing in the summer sun isn’t your thing, just get active. Try sea kayaking or coast-steering. Ride the waves on a surfboard or ride horses along the sands. Or simply just enjoy the views of Carmarthen Bay from the Glansteffan – the amphibious “boat” which crosses Carmarthen Bay between Ferryside and Llanstephan.
In summer, the Carmarthenshire countryside is full of life too. The flower beds at Aberglasney and the National Botanical Garden of Wales are vibrant with colour. Our country towns and markets are bustling. Alive with independent shops, full of produce. Some people are in search of crafts, art and fashion from nearby artists and designers. Others are ready to enjoy home-grown food and ale in an unmistakably Welsh setting.
