South Beach Tenby

Tenby South BeachThe South Beach is made up of two miles of golden sand, stretching from St Catherine's Island to Giltar Point. The beach is backed by sand dunes leading to the the oldest established golf course in Wales and looks out toward Caldey Island. The South Beach has won a Tidy Britain Group Seaside Award as well as the well respected Blue Flag (2014).

At the north end of the beach can be found hire facilities, toilets (with disabled access) and a car park (again, perfect for disabled access straight on to the beach and reasonably priced at £2 a day in April - September). A new accommodation complex is currently under construction (see Waters Edge Tenby) and mid July saw the opening of the brand new South Beach Bar Grill with fantastic views overlooking the beach, a great atmosphere, freshly cooked food and friendly staff. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea are all offered. There is also the South Beach Shack (also opened July 2012) selling proper coffee (Costa!), delicious ice creams, sandwiches and soft drinks. With both establishments having outdoor seating this is a lovely place to enjoy the view out to Caldey Island.

Lifeguards operate daily (10am-6pm) throughout the summer.

If you have a dog then this is the beach for you - between the period 1st May to 30th September dogs should be kept on a lead on the area of the South Beach nearest the town, however no restrictions apply on the majority of the South Beach so your dog can enjoy the freedom of this fantastic beach!

There is no pontoon.
