Burry Port, Carmarthenshire
Burry Port can be found in Carmarthenshire, in the south west of Wales, between Tenby and Swansea. While Burry Port grew as a small coal-port in the Industrial Revolution, today the harbour is a marina for small leisure craft.
Not only did the town make its name in the coal industry, but it also has a place in airplane history. In June 1928, Miss Amelia Earheart became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, after she landed in Burry Port following a twenty two hour flight from Newfoundland.
Today's visitors, both nature lovers and walkers will appreciate the sand dunes of the Pembrey Burrows and the Cefn Sidan Sands stretching some six miles from Burry Port to the beautiful Three Rivers estuary, where the Taf, the Tywi, and the Gwendraeth rivers spill into Carmarthen Bay.
