Cefn Sidan Blue Flag Beach.

Cefn Sidan is a fine sandy beach backed by dunes that sits at the edge of the Pembrey Burrows and looks out into Carmarthen Bay in South Wales. The beach stretches for nearly 8 miles and at low tide you can have a long walk to the water. The fine sand does make it hard to create large sandcastles.

The beach is large and exposed so it can be windy but a geat place to walk and the beach is popular for kite-buggying and kite-mountainboarding.

Cefn Sidan forms part of the Pembrey Country Park and is also known as Pembrey Beach.

Cefn Sidan Beach in Carmarthenshire has Blue Flag Status.
