Carway (Welsh: Carwe) is a village situated to the north of the town of Llanelli in the county of Carmarthenshire, Wales, in the Gwendraeth Fawr valley. It is part of the Llanelli Rural community.

Open-cast mining operations once operated to the north and south of the village. The northern area has been reclaimed and re-developed as the Glyn Abbey Golf Club. The former mining area south of the village at Ffos Las is currently being reclaimed and is being redeveloped with a new racecourse (opened on 18 June 2009) and housing.
