Pendine Sands

Visit Pendine Sands

Pendine Sands is a magnificent seven-mile stretch of sandy beach located along the Carmarthenshire coast. The beach is renowned for its flat, open sand that runs eastward from Ragwen Point.

Pendine Sands is one of the few beaches in the UK where visitors are permitted to drive on the sand. The beach hosts several car races and events throughout the year, which makes it a popular destination for motorsport enthusiasts.

The beach’s fame largely stems from its historical significance, as multiple land speed records were broken here during the 1920s. This has solidified Pendine Sands’ place in motorsport history and made it an iconic location for fans of speed and adrenaline.

Full of natural beauty, this part of the coast is surrounded by beautiful scenery, including rugged cliffs, rolling hills, and stunning sea views. It is a perfect place for nature lovers, hikers, and anyone who appreciates the outdoors.

There are excellent facilities here too, including holiday parks that back onto the sand, restaurants, shops, and accommodations. This makes it a perfect spot for a family holiday or a weekend getaway.

Pendines Sands is dog friendly and they have miles of beach to race around. They are only restricted in a small area by the car park, between the slipways.
