Medieval walled town with beautiful beaches
Tenby is our nearest town and one of the most popular holiday destinations in Wales. Enclosed by historic medieval walls and surrounded by 3 wonderful beaches, Tenby is a picturesque town well deserving of the thousands of postcards featuring its colourful buildings overlooking the traditional harbour.
The local population swells from just under 5000 during the winter to around 70,000 during the summer months. As you can imagine, Tenby can become pretty busy during the peak season!
There are plenty of shops in the town centre so if you’re looking for gifts to bring home to your family and friends, Tenby is probably the best place to find something special.
