Llys-y-Frân Reservoir was opened in 1972, and now supplies most of the water used by homes and industry in south Pembrokeshire. It has created an environment where nature and wildlife thrive and a body of water perfect for watersports of all kinds.
With over 200 acres of water there’s room for everyone to climb on board.
The water is clean, deep and there are no tides to restrict your fun. Enjoy the view on a Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) or a Pedal Board, a brand new watercraft that combines the fun of a SUP, with the comfort of handlebars. We have plenty of equipment for you to hire and the option of booking on to an instructor led session to help you get going. If you have your own kit and are confident on the water – you can simply pay and play.
Choose what to hire from our brand new fleet. You can either wear your own wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet or add it to your hire.
SUP is one of the fastest growing paddle sports. It’s an offshoot of surfing where you stand up on the board and use a large paddle to propel yourself instead of laying on the board and paddling. It offers a fantastic all-over body workout, especially the core muscle groups – and provides improved agility, co-ordination and an enhanced lifestyle.• SEE PRICES •
A brand new watercraft that combines the fun of a SUP, with the comfort of handlebars. You step on two pedal pads on the board and this drives two fins side-to-side beneath the board propelling you forwards with incredible efficiency and speed… yes you can literally walk on water.• SEE PRICES •
