Burry Port Beach is located at the mouth of the Loughor estuary in South Carmarthenshire, Wales.
There are in fact two beaches at Burry Port. The west beach lies to the west of the harbour wall and is a secluded cove nestling in front of large sand dunes. This beach has always been extremely popular with both local people and holidaymakers.
To the east of the harbour lies a brand new beach that is proving a big draw for surfers and sea canoeists. Once an expanse of open mudflats, it has been covered in deep golden sand in just three years. As a result, when conditions are right, the beach now boasts some of the best surf in the county. The beach has been growing rapidly year on year and now stretches for nearly a mile.
Neither of Burry Port’s beaches are designated bathing areas and are not manned by lifeguards.
Burry Port also has a small popular marina with a high tidal range. It is favoured by small yachts and fishing vessels. Big boats can only access the port at high tide.
There are an abundance of things to do at Burry Port Beach and Marina – a local yacht club, pub, shops, sailing, boating, fishing and swimming.
