The lovely harbour town of Tenby is a popular seaside destination due its great sandy beaches and picturesque streets.

The town is surrounded by wide golden sands, with the dramatic rocky outcrop of 13th Tenby castle in the centre overlooking the harbour and the little fishing boats.

The seafront is lined with interesting old Georgian buildings, painted in many pastel colours and giving the town a quaint and cheerful character. The narrow streets have plenty of shops, cafe and restaurants to spend some time relaxing away from the beach.

Many attractions in Tenby are based around the sea, with boat trips available from the harbour to take in the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, or visit nearby Caldey island, a wonderfully scenic home for the working Cistercian monastery. Craggy St Margaret's Island adjoins Caldey and is an important seabird colony.

There are a wide range of family-friendly activities nearby, including Heatherton World of Activities, Manor House Wildlife Park and the Dinosaur Park.
