Sitting on the southern coast of Carmarthenshire, on the estuary of the River Loughor, Llanelli makes a great base for car rental to explore both Carmarthenshire and the neighbouring Gower Peninsula. With Carmarthen Bay and its famous beaches only about 10 miles drive to the northwest, and the Gower Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lying on the other side of the Loughor estuary, there is much to see and do in the surrounding countryside.
Llanelli Wetlands Centre is about a mile to the east of the town, and is very easily reached by car. It has a collection of over 600 rare birds, and in the winter can host over 60,000 migratory birds.
Llanelli is on the Millenium Coastal Path, which runs for 13 miles along Carmarthenshire’s southern coast from Loughor to Pembrey, and offers spectacular views across the estuary to the Gower Peninsula. Drive out to enjoy incredible walks along this beautiful coastline.
Llanelli is only four miles from junction 48 of the M4, so it is very easy to visit other parts of South Wales by car. Although the area has good public transport links, renting a car will give you the freedom to really explore this beautiful part of the country at your own pace.
With many attractions in the neighbouring Carmarthenshire countryside, renting a car is a great way to make the most out of your stay here. Use Expedia to pre-book your car rental and get a great deal while saving yourself a lot of time and effort.
