Tenby Harbour beach

Tenby Harbour beach

Picturesque harbour built into corner on North Beach, between the old medieval walled town and castle hill.

There’s a small sandy beach tucked up under the harbour wall that’s perfect for very young children.

To the south of the harbour are the lifeboat stations, the old and the new. Hire easy to sail fun boats or take a boat trip to Caldey Island.

Dog restrictions apply to the whole of the harbour from 1st May to 30th September. Check out a map of the beach to help with which section of the beach it applies to.

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!
