Tenby is a delightful little harbour town and seaside resort, and it would be difficult to find a setting more picturesque. It's hilltop position led to its early settlement as a Welsh stronghold, which was replaced in medieval times by a Norman Castle and walled town. Part of the town walls survive to this day and are an attractive feature at the entrance to the old town. There are three fabulous beaches and boat trips are available from the harbour around the clear waters offering great opportunities to spot dolphins, and the other abundant wildlife.
Once known as "Little England beyond Wales" this is a rather anglicised part of Wales. From the early 19th century Tenby became a fashionable holiday destination for both the Welsh and the English, and its attractions to the holidaymaker are just as obvious today, with the fantastic beaches stretching to the north, the west, and the south of the town. If you like good beaches you will love Tenby! ....
