Pendine beach

Beautiful walks along coastal routes and sandy beaches

Pendine is a village situated on the South Coast of Wales, overlooking the glorious Carmarthen Bay.

Pendine is one of seven of Carmarthenshire’s dog-friendly 5-star rated beaches and well worth visiting if you are staying in the region.

Pendine Sands as the coastal beach is known is not only famed for its 7 mile stretch of uninterrupted golden sands but it’s famous racing past. Both Malcolm Campbell and John Parry-Thomas produced world speed records racing their cars along the flat sands during the 1920s.

The main slipway in the middle of the sands allows easy access to the sands and with car parking facilities, and further along the backshore areas are wonderful wild, sand dunes.

There are dog restrictions between May 1st – 30th September at the main slipway area but the rest of the long sandy beach is dog-friendly all year round.

The area has a MOD establishment, where part of the beach from time to time may be cordoned off for weapons testing. You’ll see prominent red flags flying prohibiting certain areas. To check ahead of walking, call for latest information 01994 452310 about testing dates and times.

Walking in the other direction from the slipway towards Gilman Point is an alternative on those days and is all year round free dog-walking.

Should you need any emergency dog care, there is a local pet veterinary practice within easy reach, just 5 miles away.

The beach operates with a lifeguard presence during the summer season operated by the RNLI and a useful webpage about Pendine Sands.

Take a look at the opportunity for a staycation with your pets at a Sykes Cottage, who offer hand-picked cottages and beach houses to rent all year, some situated just 50 yards from the beach with beautiful Amroth and Saundersfoot beaches less than 7 miles further along the coast making perfect dog walking and friendly holiday.

Doggie tips – remember to take lots of fresh water and a collapsible bowl for your thirsty dog and old towels to dry your dog if they’ve been swimming and to help clean off the sand before going home! Please remember to take with you your rubbish. You may like to use both a short and long dog lead and on busy beaches a muzzle if your dog requires it.
