Tenby

A picturesque harbour town and seaside resort, Tenby has an array of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafe’s many of which are linked by cobbled streets. Some of the most attractive features of Tenby are the 2.5 miles of sandy beaches and the 13th century medieval town walls.

The beaches in Tenby are some of the cleanest in the world not just in Wales. North Beach, Castle Beach and South Beach all have the blue flag award.

Tenby’s South Beach is where you can find the start of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which follows the coastline for over 180 miles to St Dogmaels in north Pembrokeshire. Fantastic views of Caldey Island can be seen from the Coastal Path around Tenby.

Caldey Island is well worth a visit, you can catch the ferry or an organised boat trip and tickets can be purchased from the relevant booth down at the harbour. Caldey Island has a small village but is best known for its Celtic Monastery where the monks sell shortbread, chocolate and lavender perfume which is said to be the best aroma from a single flower in the world.

You are really spoilt for choice of what to do in Tenby which makes it a very popular holiday destination for people of all ages it is really a place where there is something for everyone to enjoy.
