Penally is a sand and shingle beach backed by dunes and protected from the wind by Giltar Point headland. It is an extension of Tenby South beach rather than a separate bay with a quieter feel and popular with dog walkers all year round.
At low tide, it is possible to walk all the way along to Tenby South and Castle Beach.
From the beach, there are views across Carmarthen Bay towards Caldey Island, inhabited by the monks of Caldey Abbey. The island is rich in plants and wildlife and small boats provide trips across from Tenby in the summer months.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path passes close to the beach and overlook the stunning coast and cliffs.
Free parking with toilets can be found at Penally Railway Station. From here a pathway leads past the golf course to the beach although this pathway is closed when the adjacent MOD firing range is in use.
