The 500 acres (200 ha) reserve is situated 1 mile (1.6 km) east of Llanelli and 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Swansea in south Wales, on the eastern side of Carmarthen Bay. It is part of the Burry Inlet estuary which is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest), an SPA (Special Protection Area), and a Ramsar site.
In winter, more than 60,000 birds return here to overwinter. One of the species protected at the centre is the little egret.
