The sand is about as good as it gets. This beach was used to stage five succesful World Land Speed Records in the 1920's at speeds of around 170mph. It's long and flat enough to land Hercules military transport aircraft on (and they have)

Pendine has chosen to be most unwelcoming for visitors as far as I can see.
The arrangements for parking a car are extreemly difficult and there is an
