Pembrey Country Park, a large country park some 5 or 6 miles to the south west of Ferryside offers both forest walks and wide expanses of golden sands. The previously mentioned Cefn Sidan Sands beach at Pembrey, at 7 miles long, is said by some to be the finest beach in Europe. The beach is popular for kite-buggying or kite-mountainboarding and, with its miles of sand dunes, has also earned a reputation as an unofficial nudist beach.
