There is no better way to spend an autumn day than exploring a quiet beach in the town of Tenby. Often called the prettiest seaside town in Wales, Tenby’s Welsh name is Dinbych y Pysgod: “little town of fishes”. Built by the Normans, most of the old town walls remain but only a small tower of the castle remains.

Walk through the large town walls and explore the wonderful cobbled streets and the variety of independent shops. Once you’ve wandered the town, it’s time to take your pick on one of the four stunning sandy beaches for your walk, North Beach, Tenby Harbour, Castle Beach and South Beach.

During the colder months in West Wales, beaches are less crowded, offering a wider expanse of beach to explore. If you decide to explore North Beach, sometimes it can be just you, your pup and the large Goskar Rock in the centre to admire.

The brightly coloured houses overlook this beach, creating a fantastic photo opportunity. So make sure you bring your camera along. If the tide is out you can walk from one end of North Beach to Tenby Harbour. Once you’ve arrived at Harbour Beach take a short rest with a coffee from The Stowaway, a small coffee shop on the beach.

Feeling refreshed after your coffee? Head up the hill back into the town. You can end your walk by popping into Roly’s Fudge Shop and picking out a variety of flavours to try once you’ve returned to the warm.
