Tenby is an old seaside resort with good sandy beaches, stretches of the old town wall still standing, and winding streets with lots of character. It is 95 mi/152 km west of Cardiff and makes an excellent base for exploring southwestern Wales.
Most of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, as well as St. David's, Laugharne and Kidwelly (site of a well-preserved and impressive castle with a 14th-century chapel and battlements), are within day-trip range. From the seafront road, take in the panoramic view of the beach and harbor.
Broadhaven Beach and Barafundle Bay, in the national park, are beautiful spots for a break. In the summer, take a boat trip to nearby Caldey Island, where the resident monks sell perfume made from local flowers and herbs.
