Saundersfoot is a charming, small seaside resort between Tenby and Amroth. With a character all of its own, it is very popular with families for its stunning Blue Flag beach, pretty harbour and its quaint cafes and restaurants. Saundersfoot was designated as a conservation area by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in 1995. The harbour was originally built to transport coal from mines in and around Stepaside. Nothing remains of the mines, but the old coal tramway route has created one of the most fascinating sections of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. If you walk from Saundersfoot harbour, you will meet The Barbecue which was once Bonville’s Court Colliery Office.
Further along with The Stand, where Saundersfoot Beach House sits prettily, you come to Coppet Hall Beach which is reached through a tunnel. There are further tunnels and a walking path to Wiseman’s Bridge, a tiny seaside hamlet with a rocky beach before Amroth. Wiseman’s Bridge Beach was the stage for rehearsals of the D-Day landings during the Second World War. There is a wonderful waterside pub where you can enjoy a meal or a drink with superb sweeping views of Carmarthen Bay. The pub garden extends right down to the beach. If you carry on the old tramway, it will head inland through the woods to Stepaside where you can explore the old ironworks. This is a fantastic hiking and cycle path.
Tenby is a walled seaside town on the western side of Carmarthen Bay. It boasts 2 ½ miles of sandy beaches and is also on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The 13th-century medieval town walls include the Five Arches Barbican Gatehouse. Tenby also has a museum, the 15th century St Mary’s Church, a wonderful art gallery and the National Trust’s Tudor Merchant’s House. At Tudor Merchant’s House, you can see how a medieval family would have lived. The town is adorable, teeming with attractive pubs and shops. In the harbour, the tiny St Julian’s Church is as charming as it is unique, built for 19th-century fishermen to say a prayer before heading out to sea. Tenby hosts an Arts Festival in September and a Beer Festival and Blues Festival in November.
You can hop across to St Catherine’s and Caldey Islands. The tidal island of St Catherine’s is home to the Victorian fort built to defend Tenby from an attack by Napoleon III. Caldey Island is owned by a community of Reformed Cistercian monks. Visitors enjoy the ancient priory and the famous Caldey chocolate, fudge and perfume. Boat trips run regularly from spring to late summer.
