Millennium Coastal Path - Llanelli

The Millennium Coastal Path is a tranquil green corridor that travels past stunning coastline and beautiful woodland. This traffic-free route makes for a fun family day out. Along the trail you’ll pass one of Britain’s rare sand dune forests and the picturesque Sandy Water Park.

Following a mixture of stunning coastline and beautiful woodland, the Millennium Coastal Park is rich in wildlife and history and is one of the most spectacular sections of the Celtic Trail.

Starting at the Discovery Centre in Llanelli, this gorgeous route winds through the site of the old Duport Steelworks, which is now the picturesque Sandy Water Park with its impressive lake and birdlife.

Continue through Ashpit Ponds Nature Reserve and the new marina at Burry Port before reaching the Pembrey Forest - one of Britain’s rare sand dune forests and home to much rare botanical wildlife including 35 species of butterfly, migrant songbirds and birds of prey! Here you’ll find a variety of fantastic tracks to follow around the country park all with varying levels of difficulty.

To extend your journey, follow the trail east from the Discovery Centre in Llanelli to the Wildfowl & Wetlands Centre, Loughor Bridge and onwards to Mumbles where the route joins up with Swansea Bike Path. You can also extend your adventure westward to Kidwelly, where a visit to its mighty castle is a must!
