Having just spent a week at Pendine Sands I have this review. It is a great place to get off the grid as mobiles will have no reception (at best very, very minimal). The Welsh version of advertisements is comical, Pendine Funfair as advertised consisted of 5 shows. Must admit the area is lovely and peaceful and very quaint. The cleanliness of the area is outstanding (something other councils could learn lessons from). Every food outlet in Pendine served excellent meals in terms of taste and quality and can fully recommend any and all for a meal.
The beach at Pendine looks excellent at first glance with a gentle slope and my children loved it, so did myself until I had the occasion to be there at low tide. All I saw at the waters edge was sewage slurry in quite congealed proportions (absolutely revolting). Up until that point my impression was favourable but now my opinion is on of disgust.
Overall if you want a nice peaceful holiday or just a rest then Pendine Sands is ideal just don't go in the water.
