Ideal for family holidays, Pendine is a coastal village most famous for its long sandy beach which has become the go-to destination for attempts to break the land speed record.
Located along the south county, Pendine is just a few miles east of Amroth in the bordering county of Carmarthenshire. With an 8 mile long sandy beach, Pendine makes the perfect destination for a family holiday.
At Pendine Sands you will find caves to explore, rock pools to discover and sand dunes to run through. Popular for a number of beach-side activities, you will find kayakers, wind-surfers, jet-skiers, bathers along with horse riders out for a sunset seaside trek. Facilities include lifeguards during the summer season, pay and display parking, cafes and pubs, shops and public toilets.
Bear in mind that there are partial dog restrictions in place between 1st May and 30th September, plus some of the land behind the beach is under MoD command so portions of the beach may be off-limits during your visit.
This coastal village is famous however, for being the location where many of the land speed records have broken. Having been used since the early 20th Century as a race track due to the long firm flat surface; Pendine now has a Museum of Speed which you can visit – here you can even see “Babs”, the car which was used by Parry Thomas when he broke the land speed record in 1926. Since then, celebrities such as Guy Martin and Idris Elba have also paid a visit to this sandy location overlooking Carmarthen Bay in their own record-breaking attempts.
