Walk down to the harbour and take a cruise to the monastic Caldey Island, a haven for bird watchers and an oasis of calm. Tenby’s Welsh name, Dinbych-y-Pysgod translates into 'Little Fortress of the Fish'. A fishing expedition will prove this name quite right. The sandy Freshwater East Beach meanwhile beguiles with its scenic coastal paths, sand dunes and wildlife.
Fancy riding through Welsh dramatic coasts and woodlands on a handsome horse? Look no further than Nolton Stables where even novices are welcome. For insider information on Tenby's resident pirates, aliens and witches, try the Tenby Ghost Walk that takes visitors through some of the town's eeriest hoods.
