Tenby in Pembrokeshire for 4 kms of unspoilt beach this Summer!

Tenby in Pembrokeshire is a great family holiday destination

Tenby is a gorgeous coastal town in South West Wales where you can wander through the cobbled streets enjoying the gaily coloured properties and ocean views.

This area is known as Pembrokeshire and lies on the west side of Carmarthen Bay in the United Kingdom. What we love about Tenby is the four kilometres of sandy beaches and all the lighthouses!

They certainly get the tourists flocking in and are really busy in the Summer months but despite that traffic, they are still largely unspoilt with plenty of cafes and restaurants to keep you well-fed and watered during a long day sunbathing!

Having said that, if you’re tired of lazing around or just not a real beach person then there is a lot to see and do here from hiking the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, sailing, exploring islands, 15th Century churches and museums!

There’s plenty of good shopping in this seaside town while you enjoy the old architecture of the castle walls and visitors often compare the feel of the town to that of the French Riviera.  There are thriving arts, crafts and locally made goods stores as well as the usual supermarkets for food.

Mums and teen daughters could while away a few hours in one of the many beauty spas having facials, pedicures and massages or amble through the many art galleries stopping for tea and cake on the way!

If you’re a golfer there is also a decent 18 hole course where you can join a four-ball while the rest of the family visits one of the many interesting sites.

Mark the 31st of July in the diary while you’re there as it’s the Tenby Round Tables Summer Spectaculars – the second is on the 14th of August – and it will thrill you with entertainment, music, fireworks and stalls for everyone!

Taking your dog with you is never a problem in Pembrokeshire as it’s a dog-friendly area with pubs, restaurants and beaches allowing furry friends and the area has many dog-friendly walks too.
