Tenby South Beach

Tenby South Beach

Tenby’s South Beach is a mile and a half long, stretching from Tenby along to Giltar Point at Penally. The Tenby section of the beach is very busy in high season but thins out further along towards Giltar Point where you will find plenty of space for beach games and fishing.

The soft sands backed by sand dunes provide the perfect setting for a seaside holiday, and the clean clear waters are prefect for swimming – confirmed by the Seaside Award (Resort) 2015 and Blue Flag Beach 2015 status.

St Catherine’s Island lies just off Tenby South Beach – a small island dominated by a limestone Fort which is now open to the public.

Giltar Point is a popular spot for fishing, with anglers taking advantage of the catch at dawn or dusk, and fishing from the rocks at when the tide is low.

Fantastic views of Caldey Island and St. Margaret’s Island can be enjoyed from the coastal path at the top of Giltar Point.
For the outdoors beach loving family South Beach is a perfect place for surfing, kayaking and swimming.

On the Tenby side of the beach is the South Beach Bar and Grill offering beachside dining with fantastic views.

Overlooked by impressive sand dunes affectionately known as ‘the burrows’ the beach runs alongside Tenby Golf Course - a perfect place to enjoy a game of golf with some of the best views in the world.

The eastern side of the beach towards Giltar Point is dog friendly throughout the year, but dog restrictions do apply to the Tenby side of the beach during May to September.
