Tenby North Beach is easy to spot if you are in Tenby thanks to the iconic Goscar Rock that rears out of the sand in the centre of the beach. The beach is one of the most loved in the area and is tucked away between Harbour Beach and the elegant North Cliffs. As a result, the sands face east which means that it catches the sun all day and feels warm even when the winds are high.

Tenby North Beach is regarded by many as being one of the most attractive in Pembrokeshire and is undoubtedly one of the most photographed on the coast. As you look out to sea from Tenby North Beach, you will be able to enjoy views across the Carmarthen Bay.

With this in mind, you can expect a typical picture-postcard seaside setting at Tenby North Beach.

At the beach, you will find a length of clean sand, and as it backs onto the town, there is a range of restaurants, shops, pubs, and cafes within easy walking distance. This part of Tenby is a magnet for water sports like boating, easily accessed via a slipway. Also, you can hire deckchairs if you want to unwind on the beach for the afternoon and there is a lifeguard service that runs from late June to September which means that families can swim here with peace of mind.

To get to the beach, you can use the steps that lead down from the towering North Cliffs, or you can walk through the delightful harbour area.

Tenby North Beach has won a range of awards over the years such as the Blue Flag Beach award and the Seaside Award, which means that it is very popular, mainly when the weather is fine. You can expect some crowds, especially during school holiday periods. If you happen to be here at Christmas time, then this is also the location for the famous Boxing Day Swim event.

There is some roadside parking on The Croft, but these spaces are quickly taken. Tenby’s substantial North Beach Pay and Display car park, which we have to say is one of the best value for money car parks in the area is located off the A478 (The Norton) and connected to The Croft via a walkway.

Snacks, takeaways and ice creams are available, and toilets and drinking water are at the back of the beach. The cliffs provide excellent shelter for sunbathing, and it’s generally a safe beach for swimming. On exceptionally low tides it’s possible to walk to Castle Beach along the shore.

Dog Restrictions Apply on North Beach and the harbour area from 1st May to 30th September.
