Glansteffan - the Ferryside - Llansteffan Ferry

The ferry travels across the River Towy between the villages of Ferryside and Llansteffan in Carmarthenshire. Journeys can be started in either village.

Sailings take place when the tide allows. You can see details of the current timetable and ticket prices here.

The boarding point for the ferry in both villages will vary according to the state of the tide and users should wait at “muster points” which will be marked by conspicuous flags and/or a gazebo with the Carmarthen Bay Ferries logo.


The ferry meeting point in Llansteffan is at the South end of the beach car park.


The ferry will depart from the foreshore over the level crossing.

The boat has space for up to 4 bicycles which can be carried on the Ferry, subject to space.

Both villages are fantastic destinations for cyclists, being on the National Cycle Route that runs from London through to Fishguard.
