Burry Port is a S facing beach offering sailing at any time and good windy conditions from E through to N and NW. However, being at the entrance to a large river estuary, a strong tidal stream exists at mid tide so it is safest to sail at slack water during low and high tides. At low tide a sand bar is revealed approximately 200 metres from the beach giving shallow water for easy starting after failed carve gybes. At high tide the sand bar is concealed and there is plenty of room for long runs provided you are proficient in gybing and water starting. Dangers for this location include strong tides and often wind against tide conditions. Taking five minutes to waterstart could mean you have drifted four or five hundred metres downwind, so you must be able to waterstart quickly!


Getting there: Follow the A484 Llanelli / Burry Port road and turn left into Burry Port at the first sign. Follow this road into the town for about 200 metres the road will then bend to the left where there should be a level crossing. Turn right into the road with terraced housing along the left-hand side; follow this road around to the left, the harbour should appear on the right. Go past the Inshore rescue Boat House and turn right onto the concrete road that runs parallel with the beach
