Llanelli has lovely beaches, wetlands, and is home to the fabulous Scarlets rugby team with some very famous players, including Leigh Halfpenny (www.scarlets.wales). It is believed that Llanelli is named after a 6th century saint named St Elli who was the son or daughter of King Brychan. St Elli set up a church near the Afon Lliedi which attracted settlers near the river.Show more

Good walk starting at Llanmadoc Church down into Whiteford Burrows and onto Whiteford Lighthouse. From the lighthouse it is a pleasant walk along Whiteford Sands to Broughton Bay then up onto Broughton Burrows and Burry Holms Island.  The return trip follows the costal path and then either continue on the path or up onto the small costal road back to Llanmadoc Church. This area of coastline has some interesting caves to explore and abundant sea shells and wildlife to be seen and found.Show more
