Rent a Car to Explore the Area
It’s easier to reach Tenby from the airport by rental car. It’s also a far more enjoyable option, as you can stop in at any of the vibrant cities or traditional country towns en route.
Swansea is a great place to take in on a day trip. Situated between Tenby and Cardiff, this bustling coastal city offers the best of both worlds - fabulous restaurants, bars and clubs, alongside gorgeous sea views.
A car rental will also give you full freedom to explore the area around Tenby, which sits on the edge of South Wales’ National Park. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park spreads over a vast area and runs along the coast, providing ample opportunity to explore the many sandy beaches and caves hidden along the South Wales shore.
Pembroke Castle is 10 miles west of Tenby and is a local must-see. The 12th Century castle offers special visiting days, regular tours and the impressive Knight school, which is a fabulous experience for children. During summer months, there’s a popular theatre in the castle grounds, performing a range of plays for all ages to enjoy.
Renting a car will give you full access to the rich history and unspoilt beauty of this part of Wales, and will ensure you don’t leave any cove undiscovered.
