Tenby Harbour

Tenby Harbour sits in a central position in the beautiful Georgian town of Tenby, often known as "The Jewel in Pembrokeshire's crown". 

This picturesque town, it has grown to become Pembrokeshire's most popular tourist destination. Dinbych-y-pysgod is the Welsh name for Tenby which translates as "Little fort of the fish" and its main attraction is definitely the magnetism of the beaches that surround this little town.
