Cefn Sidan


Picnic Location  

Cefn Sidan is one of Wales’s longest beaches at close to eight-miles and overlooks Gower that can loom out of the sea like a monster in certain light playing tricks with the dunes and rambling hills running to Worm’s Head. Winter sunsets here are dreamily artistic and seemingly endless in creation over miles of silken sands and ribbons of surf constantly bowling in. Close your eyes and listen to the thunder of the sea forever present in the timeless land. The dunes provide perfect picnic habitat shelter. There is no better place fly a kite, run the dog, or go beachcombing with the kids. Or just lay back and enjoy the peace and space with a flask of tea and picnic treats of a sausage roll and a Welsh cake or two.

Picnic tip: Get cosy, bring lots of blankets and your binoculars. In certain light conditions across the eight miles of sands you can see from Caldey to Lundy sweeping round to Gower. The desert like sands are banqueting tables for all kinds of sea birds and wildfowl here, prolific especially over the winter months as they fuel up on the shellfish abundant sands before rejoining the migratory routes around the globe.

How to reach: Pembrey Country Park is just off the A484 Llanelli to Carmarthen coast road just outside Burry Port follow the county park signs.

Suggested walk: Pembrey
