“Disappointed”

Just returned from a week away at Pendine Sands, a beautiful beach which boasts 7 miles of golden sands, all of which is true. My husband and I are not sunbathers, but, love to walk along the beach late afternoon or early evening. This location seemed absolutely perfect for us to do that.
We arrived Saturday afternoon and got ourselves settled in at a nearby caravan park, all very nice. Sunday being our first full day and nice and sunny, we set off for our afternoon walk along the beach, so enjoyable, miles of flat sand, the waves lapping, it was a fabulous walk. We did notice on that fist day that there was a sign prominently displayed, which read that if a red flag was flying, you were not allowed to venture beyond the sign as the MOD own and use the beach for military firing exercises. Monday we set off for a lovely walk and quickly spotted the red flag was flying, we'd only gone approx 150 yards along the beach and had to turn back.
To our bitter disappointment, we encountered the same thing on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Saturday we were due to return home and so only managed to have one walk along the beach all week. Such a shame.
Thought it was worth a mention to other would be beach walkers.

Great beach for the family and the dog lovers plenty of space and lots of places for the kids to explore. Malcom Campbell did the land speed record here so lots of history and his car is in the museum of speed at the beach. Lots of racing events are organised on the beach though out the summer with drag cars motorbikes and fast cars.

Visited on a wet Saturday luckily it had stopped raining, I should think it's excellent on a nice sunny day perhaps we will return again soon.

We were staying in Llanstefan which is gorgeous but the kids wanted to go in the sea so we had a drive to Pendine Sands. There's everything you need here, free toilets, cafes, lifeguards! Plus it's so peaceful and quiet with miles of golden sand. Plenty of jelly fish but you just need to be sensible. Dog friendly too, so lovely to see dogs able to race about on the sand.

We didn't visit the museum of speed but read up on it, it was really interesting knowing the history of the place.

You need change for the car park or you can park on the beach as the sand is really hard.

We came here 2 days because we enjoyed the first visit so much. Also a cliff walk if the beach gets boring! Managed to keep 6, 8, 11 and 14 year olds occupied which is a major plus !
