This area contains the counties of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, which make up the majority of the south-west peninsular in Wales. Carmarthenshire's green fertile landscape has earned it the nickname of the garden of Wales. Pembrokeshire's 180 mile coastline is the jewel in its crown, and home to the only coastline national park in Britain,the Millennium Coastal Park, which has 50 outstanding beaches to explore and enjoy.
Tourism is a booming industry for both counties, although farming is still a major industry.
