We love this beach. Beautiful sand for the kids to make their castle palaces. Ice cream van on beach driving up (slowly). Beach hut type thing at the top selling food items (recommend the chicken and avocado wrap). Parking is pretty cheap and public toilets are 40p (I think).

I was on this beach during my visit at about 8am every morning to take my dog for a walk.

At that time the beach is populated by a few other dog walkers, some runners availing, no doubt, of the extra workout afforded by the sandy terrain. Occasionally there are kite surfers who avail of the winds that blow along this Long Beach.

The mornings were a perfect time to walk and the sea air clear the cobwebs from your soul as the waves lap up to your feet.

The beach is accessed (nearest the town) from a long zig zag and fairly steep walkway that winds it was from just outside the town walls down to the beach. At the bottom, some holiday apartments occupy the prime beach location as the cove opens out before you. From here turn left for the cliffs which (on my every walk) were cut off from castle beach by the sea. To the right lies a wide, curving beach walk stretching for a few km of sandy and at times stony beach.

It’s a dog friendly beautiful windswept panoramic walk perfect for building an appetite for breakfast. Later in the day it fills up nicely with different beach visitors but for me it was the perfect choice for a morning walk. Enjoy

Amazing place👌👌 Sandy Beach. Very clean beach and whole Tenby. Water of the sea is Blue with lots of wild life. Lovely local people who greets you with smiles. Panoramic view of the sea. Food and drinks are simply amazing in lots of pubs and Restaurants. We simply fall in love with the place. Don’t need to go abroad while you can come to Tenby. Not pricey at all! Public services like car parks are very cheap and plenty of them everywhere. If you got the Sun out which we had, it is simply stunning place! I highly recommend it.

Great beach to visit with kids. A lot quieter at the bottom end away from the crowds. Park at penally station and walk in through the dunes. £5 all day to park.
Much quieter than the other beaches and dogs allowed all year round (didn’t bother us at all and we were there all day but appreciate some may not like the dogs being about. )
Take cash for the 4x4 ice cream truck what comes along after lunch!
Also walk the coastal path to the headland. It’s beautiful.

My favourite beach in Tenby, over a mile long, plenty of sand especially when the tide is out and still enough space when the tide is in. Great views out to sea, along the coast and out to the Gower peninsular on a clear day at one end and Caldey Island from the other. There's a restaurant and facilities at the town end and splendid isolation at the other.

Lovely beach and could easily spend a whole day here, or even half a day to walk the length of the beach and back.
Lifeguard on site and a restaurant with some vans too serving ice cream and a bar.
Unsure of the other facilities as we are just dog walkers and can't go wrong there.

This is a terrific beach. We were here in October so not so warm but it is still a great draw. The tide was out and we had a fabulous stroll along the shore. There are loads of stones, pebbles, rocks and shells to look at as well as the sea to see.
This beach is massive and is a boon for dog-walkers and children.

This beach is absolute massive. Lots of space for your children to play. The sea is lovely and clean and the beach is very clean. I did not see any rubbish or litter left on the beach on the number of times I visited

Great beach to walk on, firm and flat. Popular with dog walkers who tend to be responsible, I do know of beaches where dogs are not welcome. There are some stones on parts of the beach but they are easily avoided by walkers.
Great views down to the long beach from the esplanade are a temptation to access it by steps. At this time of year there are few people on the beach and that makes it even more enjoyable.

We really enjoyed two days on south beach in June 2021. We hired the newly added sun beds which were fairly priced and brand new. We also used Saltys beach bar for drinks which were fairly priced and well staffed, pleasant and friendly. We normally go castle beach but really enjoyed on south beach this time.
