A superb mostly flat, well surfaced and easily accessible coastal traffic free route that follows the stunning Carmarthenshire coast, along the route of the Wales Coast Path for a distance of approximately 13miles approx. from Bynea in the East to Pembrey Country Park in the West.

There is so much to see and do along the way, with wildlife, places of interest, viewpoints and refreshment stops, so why not take your time and enjoy the experience to the full.

You start at Bynea car park, from here you cycle across a bridge and onto the Millennium Coastal Park, follow the route as it passes along the Loughor Estuary, a site of international environmental importance, keep an eye out for birdlife that frequents the estuary, the views are spectacular as the path overlooks the Gower Peninsular. Continue along the path and you’ll reach the Wetlands Centre, a bird sanctuary where you can view and learn about the various birds that live along the coast, they even have a flock of Pink Flamingos!

Continue along the coast until you reach the discovery Centre at North Dock, an information centre and cafe, with toilets and ample parking. Continue along the coast until you reach Pwll, the Pavilion is great for tea, and on further to Burry Port Harbour, a picturesque stop.

Continue around the harbour and on to Pembrey Country Park, where you can try skiing on the dry ski slope, tobogganing or walk in the woods. Cefn Sidan beach is over eight miles long and a great place to walk or build sandcastles.
