A fleet of boats run to Caldey Ialnd from Tenby Harbour, every day except Sunday, throughout the summer months, weather permitting. Tickets can be bought from the relevant booth on the harbour.

Caldey Island has been inhabited for many centuries by various orders of monks and is currently owned by the Cistercian Order, living in the beautiful Abbey, found just a few minutes walk from the landing stage.

There are a variety of churches on the island ranging from the Abbey Church where the monks conduct their seven daily services, but explore a little further and you will discover the Old Priory with its old limestone church and also the little Norman church of St David's. On the cliff overlooking Priory Beach you will also find Caldey Calvary and the Watchtower Chapel.

On the far side of the island you can walk to the lighthouse and enjoy the spectacular views. If you wish there is also a marked cliff path allowing you to explore the island and perhaps see the Atlantic Grey Seals and other birds and wildlife.

Also look out for the Chocolate Factory and Abbey Gift Shop selling perfume and shortbread baked in the Monastery.

Further information on this tranquil, historic island can be found on their website.
