Llansteffan (English: "church of Stephen") is a village in Carmarthenshire, Wales. Llansteffan Castle, built by the Normans in the 12th century, is located in the village. The village and castle were an important staging post on the coastal route from Glamorgan via Kidwelly to Pembroke used by the Normans, located between ferries over the Towy and Tâf rivers. The parish of Llansteffan consisted of two very distinct villages with separate churches: Llansteffan by the estuary and Llanybri on the hilltop inland. Between the castle and village sits Plas, Lord Kylsants former residence.

Llansteffan is one of two villages in the UK involved in a digital television switchover experiment: it has undergone the analogue switch-off already.
