Carmarthenshire Beaches and Coast

Carmarthenshire is in Wales. This county is known for its majestic mountains, verdant landscapes, golden sand beaches that stretch on forever and ancient old forests. The countryside here is quiet and beautifully picturesque with great biking trails alongside clear rivers, endless walks with hamlet pubs just waiting for travellers and miles of empty beaches where you can catch prawns or take the kids crabbing!

Walking and rambling trails are a big attraction in Wales and in Carmarthenshire there are loads of great walks for every level of fitness. Angling is another big attraction in the area as the rivers are rich with sea trout and salmon - every fisherman's dream location!

The castles in the area are really old and luckily, most complete and delight visitors with their towers, secret passages and crenellations. Visit the stronghold at Cerreg Cennen Castle or immerse yourself in the legends of King Arthur on a visit to Merlin's Oak.
