Tenby scoops silver in the British Travel Awards

Last night Tenby scooped a silver award against strong national competition at the British Travel Awards 2014 in the 'Best UK Coastal Resort' category.

In 2013 Tenby walked away with a bronze award but to come away last night with a silver is a huge achievement. And what makes the award so special is that it's voted for by you, our lovely visitors, so thank you!

For those who know our wonderful seaside town, you should enjoy the images below and if you're new to Tenby here it is in all its glory. Enjoy.

Tenby is rightfully famous for its 3 Blue flag beaches. South beach stretches a mile and half to Penally with views across to Caldey Island (a must visit). Castle beach (below) is compact and great for little ones. 

Finally North beach is for your watersports; sailing, kayaks and banana rides.

The image of Tenby harbour is probably one of the most recognised in Pembrokeshire, if not Wales. Surrounded by the candy coloured Georgian houses it's a wonderful sight.

The harbour is also the starting point for the boat trips out to Caldey Island, home to a order of Cistercian monks and the family friendly mackerel fishing trips.

The old grade II listed lifeboat station is one of the iconic views near the harbour. Restored in 2011, the station was converted into a private home and featured in Channel 4's Grand Designs. 

After wandering around the town taking in the sites, you can relax in a bar or cafe and watch the world go by. In the summer months the town becomes traffic free and the tables and chairs spill out onto the pavements and roads giving the town a real mediterranean feel.

We love Tenby; it's a beautiful town for a holiday or short break but dont just take our word for it, after all we're biased.

Visitor Ian Smith waited 55 years, yes, 55 years, before visiting Tenby last summer.

"I have just returned from a week in Tenby, my 1st ever visit. The question I have asked myself constantly is why did it take me 55 years to spend time in this fabulous town? Read his story here.

  We used to go to Cornwall until we discovered Pembrokeshire :) The most gorgeous place...So much to see and do. And the coastline...Oh wow!

Many of us are drawn to the sand, but no one has quite the affinity with sand that Marc Treanor has, so we spent a morning watching a master at work.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is literally the sport of kings and provides a versatile, exhilarating and active way to explore the coastline of Pembrokeshire.

When the kids are full of fun family bike rides are a great way to see the countryside and burn off some excess energy.
