Dog friendly beaches

Right through from October until May, the Carmarthenshire coast welcomes man’s best friend as dogs are allowed to roam freely with no boundaries or restrictions, to dog walkers.

A stroll with your dog doesn’t get much better than on Carmarthenshire’s golden, sandy beaches. We are blessed with some of the longest beaches in the UK, which, during the autumn and winter months (from 1st October to the 30th April) are open along their full length, with no boundaries or restrictions, to dog walkers. Even during the summer months, the beaches are open for business to dog walkers along much of their length. Just look out for the signs!

Carmarthenshire certainly has a lot of sand to run through, dig up and roll around see Carmarthenshire's beaches for more information.


Cefn Sidan

Wales longest beach Cefn Sidan stretches for a stunning eight miles along, the southern fringes of Carmarthenshire's coastline. With a dog free zone on just one mile of its length between May & September inclusive, dogs and their owners can still enjoy seven miles of golden sands even in the summer months. Follow (Dogs for the Beach) signs.

Millennium Coastal Park

Situated on the 11 mile long dog
friendly Millennium Coastal Park, Llanelli beach has no restrictions on dogs at any time of the year. With a range of things to do, this area is a great place to pass away the time with your dog, whether it be on the park itself or at the beach. The Discovery visitor centre based at the beach front has a café and ice cream parlour and will provide a water bowl for your dog on request.


This golden sandy beach is a must for dog walkers and around the castle grounds, also offer some great dog friendly walking. The beach in Llansteffan has restrictions where a strip of beach is inaccessible to dogs and is clearly marked with signs.


Seven miles of glorious sands overlooking the Gower peninsular. The Dog restrictions at Pendine Beach apply to the section between the two slipways, which still gives dogs an ample playground.

NB: Part of the seven miles of glorious sands is used by the MOD for firing Monday- Friday 08:00-16:15, and
conveyed by the use of red "flags which are on display while firing is in progress. Contact Range Control to find out firing times on 01994 452310 or
