The ancient ruins of Tenby Castle lie above this picturesque sandy cove; access is via the harbour or down a steep flight of steps off The Paragon. The superb, sandy beach can disappear altogether at high tide but is very interesting at low tide, especially between Castle Hill and St Catherine’s Island which, unfortunately, is out of bounds.
The boats to Caldey Island depart from Castle Beach at low tide when the harbour is dry.The vibrant town of Tenby is only a short stroll away, but the beach has a good range of facilities including toilets, cafe and museum/art gallery on Castle Hill.
Blue Flag and Seaside Award beach. Dog restrictions apply to the whole beach west of St Catherine’s Island from May to end September. Lifeguard service provided 10:00 - 18:00 17 June to 3 September 2017.
