Things to do and see while camping in Tenby

Whether you fancy a peaceful trip or an action-packed getaway with the family, Tenby has plenty to offer. Spend the day exploring beaches, museums and small islands linked to or just of the coast of Tenby.

Beautiful beaches

Aside from the harbour, Tenby is home to three separate beaches with glorious views. Located between the picturesque Tenby Harbour and the North Cliffs, Tenby North Beach is perhaps the most popular of three. Take a stroll along the long stretch of golden sand, swim in the crystal blue water and take in the breath-taking coastal views. This beach isn’t hard to spot due to the spectacular Goscar Rock, which protrudes impressively from the sand.

If you’re looking for some adventure, head to Tenby South Beach, popular for leisure activities. Make the most of the sea and try out windsurfing, angling, and canoeing. When the beach is at a low tide, there is plenty of room for other activities for the whole family, including ball games and sandcastle building. This beach is also a favourite for all dog-owners as it is dog-friendly all year round, unlike the other Tenby beaches. You can also take in the fantastic views looking out onto the islands of Caldey and St Margaret’s.

Tenby Castle Beach is a charming and quaint sandy beach located on the south side of the cobblestoned town between East Cliff and Castle Hill. Prone to disappearing altogether at high tide, at low tide, this beach is known for its calm waters and nearby cafes and restaurants.

Incredible islands

Just off the coast of Tenby is Caldey Island, home to a small village of Cistercian Monks who farm the tiny island. Having been inhabited since inhabited since the Stone Age, Caldey Island has a rich and intriguing history that dates back over 1500 years. The island is open to day visitors at certain times of the year and is a 20-minute boat trip away from Tenby. You can only access the island by boat and can buy tickets at the Caldey Island stand, based at the top of the harbour. Host to sandy beaches, stunning views and pleasant picnic spots, you’re guaranteed to have a fabulous day out.

Just off the western tip of Caldey Island sits St Margaret’s Island. This island is inhabited by fascinating colonies of birds, including guillemots, razorbills and three types of gulls: great black-backed gulls, lesser black-backed gulls and herring gulls. As a result, the island is an important nature reserve. You can take a guided boat tour around both Caldey and St Margaret’s Island. 

Historic marvels

The museum is home to two art galleries, one a permanent collection and the other a location for changing exhibitions. The museum is built on a medieval domestic building, which is thought to be the remains of Tenby Castle’s Hall.

Perched at the top of Castle Hill, a small tower of Tenby Castle proudly stands, surrounded completely by the sea. While there is much not left of the once grand castle, the old town walls contain narrow streets, which is what adds to Tenby’s charm.
