Things to do at Llansteffan Beach Review

Technically, Llansteffan beach is a tidal estuary, rather than a beach. As such, it’s too dangerous to swim in, although you can paddle in the riverbed when the tide is fully out. Please do not attempt to cross the estuary, even at low tide.

It is a large expanse of sand located on the western side of the Tywi estuary. The sand is fine and golden and is ideal for building sandcastles. To the rear of the main beach, there is a grassy area with picnic benches and a play area for children. The beach is overlooked by the ruins of Llansteffan Castle which you can climb the tower of and enjoy views over the estuary.

There are two large free, car parks at either end of the beach, one with public toilets and a takeaway fish and chip shop. The beach is also dog-friendly, but there are restrictions from May to September.
