Carmarthen Bay (Welsh: Bae Caerfyrddin) is an inlet of the south Wales coast. The coastline includes notable beaches such as Pendine Sands and Cefn Sidan sands, and is partially within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Carmarthen Bay and Estuaries are listed as Special Areas of Conservation by Joint Nature Conservation Committee.
An area of the Carmarthen Bay coastline near Burry Port was used in the 1980s to test wind turbines. The first turbine to be installed in the area was switched on in November 1982. Five turbines of different designs were tested at the site, installed between 1982 and 1989. The project was concluded in the late 1990s, the turbines were removed and the land eventually integrated into the Millennium Coastal Park.
