Accessed from the harbour or down a steep flight of steps off The Paragon, this lovely, sandy beach, sheltered by cliffs can disappear altogether at high tide. St Catherine’s Island overlooks Castle Beach creating beautiful scenery whilst you relax in the sea. The boats to Caldey Island leave from Castle Beach at low tide when the harbour is dry.
Car parking: The multi-storey car park is the closest but fills up quickly in summer. If you arrive after 11am during the school summer holidays, head straight for the park and ride and use the free shuttle bus.
Food: café on Castle Hill plus numerous cafes, pubs and restaurants around the beach and in Tenby town.
Toilets and disabled toilets on Castle Hill
Lifeguards: on duty from the end of June to the end of September.
Dogs: Dog restrictions apply to the whole beach west of St Catherine’s Island from 1st May to 30th September.
Awards: Seaside Award (Resort) and Blue Flag
