Llansteffan is a quaint village on the coast of Carmarthenshire, in south-west Wales. It lies on the western side of the River Towy estuary, some seven miles south of the county town of Carmarthen and opposite the village of Ferryside.
Llansteffan is one of those rare but fast disappearing Welsh villages that remain in your memory for ever... one of the best kept secrets in the U.K. It might be for quiet walks taking in the breathtaking beauty of our headlands and the variety of our wildlife and the pristine sands beneath the castle perhaps, or maybe just a general “chilling out” in the convivial village atmosphere.
Nearby is Dylan Thomas birthplace.
The climate is unlike the rest of Wales, being located in the sunshine coastal belt, it is more like Cornwall.
Llansteffan Castle is an impressive, dramatically sited stronghold sitting on a hilltop overlooking the estuary of the River Tywi. Long before its construction an Iron Age hill fort of the 6th century B.C. occupied the site, its double ditch can still be seen on the west of the castle.
For generations of South and West Walian Welsh school children and chapel-goers the name Llansteffan will always conjure up golden memories of Sunday School Trips to the Seaside, and fun and games on the beach. Llansteffan (together with Porthcawl and Tenby) was one
of these special locations.
Llansteffan may have been one of Wales' best kept secrets for the majority of visitors to Wales, but one group of regular wanderers have known of it's charms for generations – the keen walkers and ramblers in our midst. Nestled in this gorgeous corner of south west Wales is a walkers' paradise. Llansteffan has earned itself a well deserved reputation over the years for being a hot spot for bass and flounder fishing. Every year bass to 12lb and flounder to 2-3 lb are caught from the village at all states of the tide.
