Tenby Beach

Visitors to Wales are often staggered by quite how picturesque it can be here and nowhere more so than at Tenby, probably the most iconic seaside town in the country. Tenby Beach is the generic name given to not one but four of its beaches, all of which offer sheltered, deep blue water and outstanding views.

While all of these beaches are worth exploring, it’s Harbour Beach, at the rear of the harbour, which offers the best protection from the wind and must be considered one of the most child-friendly beach destinations in Pembrokeshire. Recently named the finest beach in Europe, Harbour won out over competitors from Portugal, Croatia and Italy. Considered the jewel in the crown of Pembrokeshire’s tourism portfolio, it’s postcard-perfect, if a little crowded during peak season.

If you should want to escape the crowds, Tenby’s other three beaches, stretching out for over two miles, might be just the ticket. On either side of the town lie the north and south beaches while, between Castle Hill and East Cliff the area known as Castle Beach offers a sandy cove below the striking 12th century fortification. South Beach is the biggest stretch, so head here if you want throw a frisbee. From Castle Beach, boat trips offer access to Caldey Island, one of the Holy Islands of Britain with a history stretching back 1500 years. The island is still inhabited by Cistercian monks today.

Wherever you head for life near Tenby is certainly a beach.
