Laugharne Sands

Visit Laugharne Sands

Just east of Pendine, Laugharne is a sandy unspoilt beach famous for being the last home of Wales’s most famous poet and writer Dylan Thomas. A famous literary location, you can visit the boathouse where the poet spent the last four years of his life.

The Wales Coast Path runs through here and visitors can visit the medieval remains of  Laugharne Castle which looks out over the Taf estuary.

The beach stretches from the town to Ginst Point which is within the MOD firing range.

For a weekend away, stay at one of the holiday cottages in the area and take in the local history.

This beach is dog friendly all year round.
