Morfa Bychan (Pendine) Beach

Pendine is a sand and shingle beach at the bottom of a cliff top, overlooking Carmarthen Bay, and surrounded by pleasant, hilly countryside. The beach is popular for walking and boating, with excellent views from the cliff tops, and the chance of seeing marine wildlife such as seals, dolphins, or even whales out in the surf.

There are some limited facilities at Pendine Village but the nearest town of any size is Saundersfoot, a few miles to the west. Here, many facilities such as shops, places to stay, and places to eat can be found as well as a railway station.

hidden gem

What a gorgeous, secluded gem. Difficult to find if you don’t know the way. That’s great of course for those who, like me, DO know.
