Tenby South beach

A mile and a half long, dune backed, beach playground.

There’s plenty of space at the Tenby end for families or continue eastwards for more boisterous beach activities.

There’s acres of beach at low tide but still plenty of room at high tide. The sea shelves very gently and is free of obstructions.

Dog restrictions apply to the beach below the cliffs, east of the beach car park/cafe between 1st May to 30th September. 

If you’re planning to visit, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of beach to play on and that you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide!

What's at Tenby South beach ?


Blue Flag Beach 2016 and Seaside Award (Resort) 2016.


There is a very small car park next to South Beach but it fills up very very quickly in summer. A privately run car park off The Esplanade has more space but if you arrive after 11am during the school summer holidays, head straight for the park and ride and use the free shuttle bus. Alternatively, park at Penally station and walk across the golf course.

Beach facilities

Deck chairs and ice cream van. Lifeguards will be on duty from end of May until early September.

On shore facilities

Cafe and toilets on access to beach. Tourist information centre, numerous cafes, pubs and restaurants, many interesting shops and a good choice of hotels, caravan parks, B&Bs and self catering in Tenby.
