Local Leisure Activities
The local area is fantastic for walking and is suitable for those that enjoy a quick stroll through to those looking for a more energetic ramble. The leisure park is runs along side a purpose built cycle / foot path that runs from Loughor Bridge right through to Kidwelly. The path is traffic free and is generally flat. The nearby Country Park at Pembrey has many miles of forest pathways which make for a great hike.
Situated along side a car free cycle path running from Llanelli to Kidwelly, Shoreline is a superb base for cyclist of all abilities. It’s possible to cycle to Pembrey Country park in about 15 minutes and in the opposite direction a keen cyclist could get to Llanelli in less than 30 minutes from Shoreline.
Shoreline Leisure Park is located next to a beach which overlooks Burry Port pier and lighthouse and across the Burry Inlet to the Gower. This beach is just a few minutes walk over the sand dunes and is popular with dog walkers and families enjoying the seaside and sunbathing.
A few miles from Shoreline is the seven mile long Cefn Sidan beach. This beach is very popular for a wide range of activities including land yachting, kite surfing, kayaking, swimming and generally enjoying a day at the beach. Cefn Sidan beach can be reached by car (5 minute drive) by bicycle (15 minutes) or by foot in about 30 minutes.
The local area is very popular with fishermen (and women) during the summer months. You’ll see many people fishing for mackerel and sea bass from small boats and from the shore. Fishing charter boats operate from Burry Port harbour throughout the season.
‘Anglers Corner’ based in nearby Llanelli supplies an extensive range of bait, tackle and equipment. It’s also worth calling in for loads of free expert advice on the local area.
Fishing & pleasure boat trips are available from Burry Port harbour.
The flat expanse of seven miles of sand make an ideal venue for land yachting and associated sports such as parakarts, land boarding and speed sailors. For safety and insurance purposes the use of the beach is restricted to members of theCarmarthenshire Land Sailing Club , but membership fees are very reasonable.
Jet Skiing is a popular activity in the summer months in the Burry Inlet throughout the summer months. The slipways at Burry Port harbour provide easy access to the water and the waves breaking off the sandbanks provide a great opportunity for high speed thrills. Contact Phil at Shoreline reception for more information on local Jet Skiing.
Kayaking / canoeing
The waters off Shoreline beach are great for kayaking and canoeing, but local advice should be taken on tide conditions prior to setting out.
Horse riding is available at Pembrey County Park.
Horse Racing – Ffos Las
