The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Tenby is in Pembrokeshire National Park - Britain's only coastal national park. In 2010 a panel of 340 National Geographic magazine experts ranked Pembrokeshire as the second best coastline in the world beating places like The Seychelles, Bermuda and Costa Rica. An online travel adviser 'Cheapflights' rated the Coast Path as the third best walking trail in the world. Last year, Tripadvisor asked its cutomers to vote on their favourite beach destinations in the UK and Tenby was rated 5th.
Film crews have been in the area recently with Freshwater West being used for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and Robin Hood with Russell Crowe; Marloes for Snow White and the Huntsman and Barafundle Bay for Third Star and Manorbier and the Preselis for Round Ireland with a Fridge.
Ironman Wales has taken place in Pembrokeshire the last two years and is due to return this September. Based in Tenby, the early morning swim was well worth getting up for with approximately 1500 competitors in the water off North Beach; the cycle section covers most of the south of the county with many roads closed to facilitate safe passage and is a spectacle for visitors and locals alike - the final run in of the marathon passes in front of Carnock along the Esplanade to the finish line.
With so many places to walk, visit or just sit on a bench and enjoy the views, Tenby is well located for all South Pembrokeshire has to offer. The beaches are soft, clean and sandy - Blue Flag status ensure good water quality and RNLI lifeguards in the summer season, with plenty of facilities such as toilets and cafes. Use a combination of train and coastal buses for walking the coast path if you want to leave the car behind.
