Sugar Loaf, sometimes called The Sugar Loaf, is a prominent hill beside the A483 trunk road some 4 miles (6.4 km) south-west of Llanwrtyd Wells in Carmarthenshire, Wales. It is a popular viewpoint and picnic spot within easy reach on foot from the roadside car parks to the northeast and to the south. There is a stop on the nearby Heart of Wales Line called Sugar Loaf railway station.

The name Sugar Loaf has been applied to numerous hills which have a perceived resemblance to a sugarloaf; the nearest is the Sugar Loaf on the border between Powys and Monmouthshire.[2]
