About Llangennith

This three-mile stretch of flat sand, set against a vast expanse of dunes, is hugely popular. The sheer size of the beach and the inconsistency of distinguished sandbars means that the waves tend to lack punch and definition, however it does break regularly and works through the tides. This spot prefers small surf, as larger swells tend to close out, meaning a hell paddle through the channel-free whitewater. One of the epicentres of the Welsh surf scene.
