Owned by Cistercian monks and open to tourists during the summer, Caldey Island is a fantastic, family-friendly day out. The island is reached via boat from Tenby and tickets can be purchased from a small kiosk above Tenby Harbour.
On sunnier days you can enjoy sunbathing on Priory Bay, a wonderful sandy beach with views to Tenby. A picnic spot, a small café, a shop and a post office are overlooked by Caldey Abbey at the centre of the island, and the quaint St David’s Church is just a short walk away.
The Monks have a tradition for making perfume and chocolate, both of which can be purchased in the shop, and they’ve recently branched out into making fudge too! The fudge kitchen can be visited as you walk up the hill towards the lighthouse.
