Pembrey Country Park is a country park on the coast of South Wales, near the village of Pembrey, Carmarthenshire, and the town of Llanelli.

Pembrey Country Park consists of some 500 acres (200 ha) of parkland. Its southern edge is formed by the 8 miles (13 km) long Cefn Sidan beach. The park contains visitor attractions such as ski slope, adventure play areas, a miniature railway and mountain bike trails.[1]

The land which the park is located served industrial uses in the 20th century. Railway lines, World War II bunkers and pillboxes still remain.[2]

Music Festival[edit]

Beach Break Live is a music festival which was first held at the park in 2010,[3] having been held at other venues previously. The festival is aimed at a student audience.[4] The event is organised by a pair of entrepreneurs who secured backing from Peter Jones on TV show Dragon's Den.[5] About 12,500 students attended the first event at Pembrey Country Park in 2010.[3]
