Pastel coloured houses, cobbled streets and a harbour full of ostentatious boats – you could be anywhere in the world, let alone on the beautiful South coast of Wales. Tenby is one of the most picturesque towns in Wales. It hosts some of Pembrokeshire’s most wonderful beaches and some of the most highly acclaimed restaurants and cafes. It's an attractive destination for visitors looking for family friendly holiday cottages in a traditional seaside resort.
Tenby's hilltop position led to early settlement in Wales and is home to a grand Norman castle with some of the old town walls still framing the town’s cluster of pretty buildings creating a wonderful entrance to the town of Tenby. With the coast so close there is of course, a plethora of water sports in which anyone can take part, such as surfing with an ex British Champion, or windsurfing across the exciting swells of Tenby’s coast. Tenby is also surrounded by a constellation of small wildlife-inhabited islands which are frequently visited by pleasure boat trips for visitors.
There is also a rich variety of shops and boutiques lining Tenby’s beautiful streets – ranging from well-known brand names to Tenby’s finest home grown creative talents. And at night the whole harbour is lit up giving the town a Riviera feel to it as the glistening water surrounding it glows in the dark. It’s no wonder this enchanting town is so popular. If what you’re looking for in a holiday hasn’t yet cropped up, look no further than Tenby, it’s guaranteed to impress young and old alike.
