Tenby: A Holiday Favourite
Tenby is an historic town tracing it's beginnings to the 10th century. During the 12th and 13th centuries a castle was built and the town walled. Some of these walls still stand.
The Victorians made the town popular as a seaside resort, which it remains today.
Summer brings many visitors to Tenby's beautiful beaches and easy access to beautiful Pembrokeshire.
Despite the fact that Tenby is a good few hours drive from home, it remains a favourite place for a few days chill-out in the summer. The great thing about Tenby is that I can arrive at a good bed and breakfast, park the car and leave it there. The beautiful sandy beaches, Castle Beach, North Beach and South Beach are a few minutes walk away. For a meal I can choose between Greek food, a good steak or pie, or simple fish and chips eaten on the beach within a short walk.
Tenby is on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, and is located in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. So if walking is your choice there are many places to go. If a drive is more your bag, then good roads provide a route to most of picturesque Pembrokeshire.
To really experience a chill-out, visit the lovely island of Caldey, just a short boat trip away.
Of course all of this adds up to some great photo opportunities, especially at sunrise. To be a bit more specific, the sun sets inland, so the sun rising over the sea is an early jaunt. The classic Tenby photo is the harbour, against a backdrop of pretty coloured buildings.
