The combination of mountains, hills, manmade waterways and a plentiful supply of rain from the Atlantic ocean make for a wide range of watery activities in and around the National Park.
Depending on your inclination and the time of year, there really is 'something for everyone' to enjoy.

The Brecon Beacons National Park includes Wales' largest natural Lake at Llangorse, the Rivers Wye and the River Usk and its tributaries, ever popular with anglers and paddlers alike, and 35 miles of the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal. The waters of the mountains' lakes and ponds are supplemented by dams holding back the reservoirs which supply South Wales with its water - creating watery expanses in the heart of the hills. Wherever you go and whatever you do please help look after the National Park and its wildlife and respect other people's enjoyment too - follow the Country Code on land, and the Waterways Code on the water.
