Long walks in Carmarthenshire

Dylan Thomas' home, Llaugharne

Ferryside to Kidwelly
5.25 miles / 8.5 km 

This section of the Path crosses pleasant countryside, away from the coast, but it includes magnificent views across three river estuaries and over to the Gower Peninsula. Kidwelly’s main attraction is the imposing medieval castle. (Train & Bus)

Amroth to Pendine
5.5 miles / 9 km

The little known gem of the Carmarthenshire coast, with a landscape of spectacular cliffs and beaches reminiscent of neighbouring Pembrokeshire. Pendine Sands has a thrilling history of land speed trials. (Bus)

Kidwelly Quay to Pembrey
6 miles / 9.7 km

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.

Trefenty to Llansteffan
7.5 miles / 12 km

South of Trefenty Farm is an ancient ruined church, where there are medieval graves reputed to be of pilgrims. 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.

Burry Port to Loughor
7.5 miles / 12 km

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.

Kidwelly to Burry Port
9.25 miles / 14.75 km

A walk through 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. (Train & Bus)
