Cockling and Fishing at Ginst Point

Within the Taf there are various cockle beds, some of which are harvested commercially.

Carmarthen Bay has a large tidal range, with a strong tide and areas of soft sands. Access to the cockle beds is controlled by byelaws and is enforced by Officers of the Welsh Government’s Fisheries Unit. The byelaws must be adhered to at all times and it is your responsibility to keep a look out for any changes to the byelaws that might affect your gathering activities.

Ginst Point is accessible through Brill Gate when the Range is NOT operational and the red flag is not flying. Public access is permitted if the automatic gate is open. For your own safety, and that of others, please DO NOT attempt to cross the gate if it is closed.

For more information see the Welsh Government Intertidal fishing website.
