Penally beach

Penally beach

At the far end of Tenby south beach is Penally Beach.

It’s more of an extension of South Beach than a separate bay, but it does have a completely different character. This part of the beach isn’t visited very much and is made up of a sand and shingle beach, backed by dunes, protected from the wind by the headland of Giltar Point.

Walk across the dunes from Penally station to get there, although this path can be closed as it crosses a rifle range. It also crossed Tenby Golf Club so watch our for wayward shots!

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!
