The Council will, whenever possible, open the beach for controlled parking. The weather, tide and sand conditions determine when the beach will be open for car parking. When the beach is open for parking all vehicles will be confined to a specific parking area. Only authorised vehicles are allowed access to other parts of the beach.
Well behaved dogs are allowed on certain areas of the beach and dog owners are encouraged to keep dogs on a lead. Clear signage shows the areas where dogs are allowed. Dogs are specifically excluded from the central area of the Community Council owned beach between the two slipways. The area of the beach between the two slipways is referred to as the bathing area.
The beach is monitored by Carmarthenshire County Council's Enforcement Officers. Dog owners have a legal obligation to clear up after their dog has fouled. It is an offence to not pick up after your dog and you could incur an on the spot fine.
While Pendine Community Council owns a section of the beach at the village end and to the west, the Ministry of Defence (Qinetiq) own the majority to the east. This area is usually closed to the public from 8.00 am to 4.30 pm on weekdays but is normally open to the public at weekends. The boundary between the two areas is monitored and marked during times when access to the MOD part of the beach is not allowed. Certain parts of the Community Council owned beach may be closed to the public when we are hosting events, or when the beach is being used for filming.
You cannot launch a boat or jet ski at Pendine Sands unless you are a member of a Club registered with Pendine Community Council. Please contact us for more information.
