An estuary-edge walk alongside the Gwendraeth which makes use of the Banc y Lord seawall into Pembrey Forest, a nature reserve managed by the Forestry Commission. Planted on sand dunes, it is mostly a Corsican pine forest, but with deciduous trees growing in parts. Find out more about the Kidwelly Quay to Pembrey walk.

It is certainly worth visiting these carved gravestones depicting people at rest, but modern research suggest that they are actually of local medieval landowners. Find out more about the Trefenty to Llansteffan walk.
This section follows the Millennium Coastal Park along the edge of Llanelli, a town built on coal working and export, copper smelting and, most famously, tinplate manufacture.
