On Carmarthen Bay, towards the southernmost coast of Pembrokeshire, lies the walled seaside resort of Tenby. With nearly three miles of sandy shores and a rich tapestry of Welsh history to explore, Tenby is a superb spot to enjoy a coastal holiday in Wales.
History and culture abound with the notable features of the thirteenth-century medieval town walls, including the Five Arches Barbican Gatehouse, the fifteenth-century St Mary's church, the National Trust's Tudor Merchant's House and the art gallery and museum.
Part of Britain's only coastal National Park, Tenby is situated on the Pembrokeshire Coast path, and is also connected to the rest of Wales by its very own railway station. Those who wish to venture further afield from their Welsh coastal holiday retreat, then, can do so with ease.
