Whilst we were on holiday in Wales we decided to explore a little bit outside of Bluestone National Park Resort. One thing we wanted to do was go to a beach and we had heard great things about Tenby so planned to go there. In the end the weather was better than it had been all week and so we definitely chose the best day for our trip to the seaside!
We drove into Tenby and soon realised that there were a few beaches to choose from. We decided to have a bit of a drive around before deciding on which beach to go to and it was immediately obvious why Tenby was such a hotspot for tourists – it was beautiful!
We drove past tenby North Beach and saw that it was quite a way below the town, with steps down. The boats seemed to be quite a feature and it looked quite busy already so we carried on driving to take a look at South Beach. This was immediately the beach for us – you could drive almost onto it making it perfectly for families.
We picked up some buckets and spades from a local shop and set up camp on Tenby South Beach for a few hours. The sand was golden and it couldn’t have been more picturesque – it may even rival some of the beautiful beaches we have seen on our holidays in Cornwall.
We spent our time paddling in the sea although Little Man didn’t like the cold water on his feet. We all searched for seashells – to be a feature in Little Man’s new big boy bedroom, and built sandcastles too. It was the perfect way to spend a day of holiday.
After our time on the beach we went and grabbed an ice cream – such great value for ice cream in a tourist hotspot and loads of flavours to choose from too. It was lovely! A great way to finish our day out.
If you find yourself in Pembrokeshire any time soon then definitely pay Tenby a visit. It was a little piece of paradise and so lovely to share it with the children.
