Tenby Castle Beach

Tenby Castle Beach is within a cove between the Castle and the East Cliff, with the beach being sheltered by the cliffs. This is the smallest of the Tenby beaches and can get crowded.

At low tide boat trips run to Caldey Island or if a little more adventurous it is possible to walk out to St. Catherine’s island, but beware the tide can cut you off.

Facilities include cafes, toilets, deckchair hire and summer lifeguards, but you then also have access to many cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops in Tenby.
