St Clears to Llansteffan – Wales Coast Path

The day started with an early morning pick up at Carmarthen station as our friend Eniko joined us. Swiftly back to St Clears and heading to Llanstephan.

Not such a nice day – cloudy.

Lots of road walking today, not my favourite surface. You only get views of the coast at the beginning and end of this stage.

Much of this walk from field to field or on the road. Llansteffan beach, lots of young families on the beach, enjoying the brisk and bleak weather.

A slight detour up to the castle is a must, although the climb up was a bit of a challenge at the end of a day’s walking. Llansteffan castle, 12th century flick flacked between the Welsh and the Normans, both vying to take control of this strategically placed fortification.

There is a real sense of spring in the air!

Our friendly taxi driver of the day was Eddie, but a whacking £35 fare had us rethinking our travel arrangements for the next day.

Evening had us dining in Arthur’s, a very friendly eatery in Laugharne.
