The café's menu offer a range of light lunches, snacks and other drinks to cater for all visitor tastes and preferences. It’s an ideal place for park visitors to rest, relax and take in the wonderful views of Carmarthen Bay and the Gower Peninsula.

This fabulous Millennium Coastal Park in Carmarthenshire has miles of coastal cycling and walking paths to enjoy. You can follow National Cycle Route 4 along a super traffic free path which passes along the beautiful Loughor estuary and the Gower peninsula. The route takes you past Llanelli beach and Tywyn beach to Burry Port where you will find a pretty harbour, beach and the newest marina in Wales. You then head back east passing Sandy Water Park and Machynys beach before coming to the National Wetlands Centre where you can look out for a variety of birdlife. Look out for flocks of dunlin, ringed plover, sanderling and redshank along the coast whilst shelduck, oystercatcher and curlew can be seen further out on the mudflats.
Other highlights in the park include the excellent Discovery Centre where you will find a wealth of information about the area in a fabulous modern building.
If you would like to continue your outing you could head west along the coast to the fabulous Pembrey Country Park where you will find more lovely coastal scenery, woodland wildlife trails and bike hire from the Ski Pembrey centre.
