Llansteffan Beach and Llansteffan Castle in Carmarthenshire, Wales

The Llansteffan Beach is a beautiful beach for walkers and families picnics.









Overlooking the beach on the headland is the stunning Llansteffan Castle, which commands a breath-taking view across the estuary.

The Llansteffan Castle stands on a small hill in the village of Llansteffan overlooking the Twyi estuary. The castle was built by the Normans and had been repeatedly attacked and captured by the Welsh.









Sometime in 1338, the castle was converted into a stone fortress - all that remains today.

The castle and the beach make for a good day picnic. The castle is open at all times and there is no entry fee. The path to the castle is a long steep uneven path over a tiiny hill. There are no refreshments available at the castle so it is advisable that you carry your food stuuf if you intend to have a picnic at the top.











Llansteffan is very near from the town of Carmarthen. If you are driving down in your own vehicle, you can park it at the Llansteffan beach car park and then climb up the hill to the castle.
