There are a number of on-line sites that provide information about tide times. The weather influences and determines when we can open the beach for car parking. The Council opens a controlled car park on the beach in the season and busy weekends. All vehicles are confided to this area and only authorised vehicles are allowed access to other parts of the beach. All other times motorised vehicles are prohibited to access the beach (with exceptions to emergency services and MoD). Permission can be sought from the Clerk or the beach warden on duty.
Well behaved dogs are allowed on certain areas of the beach and dog owners are encouraged to keep dogs on a lead. Signs show the areas where dogs are allowed and are excluded from the central area of the beach which is dog and car free. This area between the main slipway and the slipway by the Beach Hotel is referred to as the bathing are.
Please clean up immediately after your dog. The beach is monitored by Carmarthenshire County Council's Enforcement Officers and it is an offence to not pick up after your dog. 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 usual closed to the public from 8.00 am to 4.30 pm on weekdays but normally is open at a weekend. Certain parts of the Council beach will be closed to the public when we are hosting events or the beach is being used for filming.
Please note that you cannot launch a boat or jet ski at Pendine unless you are a member of the Pendine Boat Club. Access for land sailing is also limited to club members.
