"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Penally Beach Weather and Tides

This sandy beach, approximately 1 km across, faces south east over Carmarthen Bay and is backed by sand dunes, a golf course and the village of Penally. The River Ritec drains land to the north and west, flowing in to the sea at Tenby and is the dominant freshwater influence to the bathing water. There is also a small stream running down the beach which drains marshland behind the dune system. The bathing water lies within 1 km of the Carmarthen Bay and Estuaries Special Area of Conservation and the surrounding area forms part of the Lydstep Head to Tenby Burrows Site of Special Scientific Interest. The bathing water is also located within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, further highlighting the environmental value of the area.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
