About Priory Bay (Caldey Island)
A pleasant boat trip from Tenby Harbour or Castle Beach takes you to this beautiful and fascinating island. Caldey has been inhabited since the Stone Age, and has been home to various orders of monks since Celtic times. It is now owned by monks of the Cistercian Order, whose picturesque monastery overlooks the Village Green and the pretty cottages of the islanders.
In the village you can buy the perfumes, chocolate and shortbread made on the island. The Village Post Office is also a museum giving an interesting insight into Caldey's history. Postcards and special covers are franked with the Caldey Island handstamp.
Green Coast Award beach. Cafe, toilets and the Caldey Island shop. The island welcomes well behaved dogs on leads.
