Newport on the River Nyfer is a picturesque small market town that spent some of its past as a herring port. Abercastle is a tiny hamlet that started life as a trading harbour exporting slate and grain.

Tenby is a gorgeous walled seaside town. Originally settled by the Normans, Tenby became a fortified town in the 13th century.
