Carmarthen Estuary Coastal Path
Holiday Ref: Walka 214
Part of the Whole Wales Coast path, Carmarthen Bay is one of the most important conservation areas and the most amazing estuary.
Now is your chance to take advantage of this exciting new part of the Wales Coastal Path and explore this exceptional piece of coastline – as you take the Path from Amroth (which is the finish of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path), through to the Discovery Centre at Llannelli you will be setting out on a journey through time.
Carmarthen Bay was formed at the end of the last Ice Age, some 10,000 years ago when the glaciers melted, sea levels rose and the former Severn Valley plain was flooded. Even today, glimpses of submerged forests and peat beds can be seen along the shore and are reminders of ancient climate change.
On land there is a great variety of historic sites and settlements, from prehistoric burial chambers to industrial harbours,’ all testimony to centuries of human activity including shipping and fishing.
The walks takes 5 day
