Swiss Valley

Paddle around the Reservoir among the beautiful hills of Carmarthenshire


Swiss Valley Reservoir is a sheltered and safe place with lots on offer – easy water access via pontoon, washdown station, toilet facilities, parking and it’s easy to get to. The reservoir is a site of outstanding natural beauty and is surrounded by a mosaic of habitats and supports a wide diversity of flora and fauna. You can spot Heron or Kingfisher if you’re lucky. As an inland location that lies within an area of stunning scenery at Swiss Valley, Llanelli, offers a safe and sheltered environment, ideal for those windier and colder days.

Once the AquaPaddlers have walked down from the car park, there is an excellent Jetty to launch boards and boats from. The walkways are wide and can easily accommodate different-sized craft.

If you are an inexperienced paddler, this is an excellent place to take part in your first AquaPaddle. Sheltered from winds and no current, it is ideal to enjoy stretching yourself a little more. For the experienced AquaPaddler, this is the location to set a good time.

The Swiss Valley crew come from a diverse set of backgrounds and if you are interested in volunteering to join the crew please contact us through the Discord Comms System or email AquaPaddle. A local AquaPaddle Captain will get in touch to learn more about your experience and what you would like to do.
