Check out a town that's a perfect ten(by)

Set beside Carmarthen Bay on the southern coast of Wales, Tenby's a small—but mighty—seaside town that's known for its bounty of shops, pubs, and restaurants, as well as more than 2 miles of sandy beachfront. The town also boasts a rich local history, including a wealth of preserved buildings and structures from the middle ages. In your Tenby vacation rental, you'll be just a hop, skip, and a jump from local sights like Pembroke Castle, the Tenby Town Walls, and the Tenby Museum and Art Gallery.

From beachfront to castles, Tenby's got it all

Water you waiting for? Tenby's 2 beaches offer 2.5 miles of sandy coastline along Carmarthen Bay, and sometimes it can be hard to choose which to do first—soak up the sun on Harbour Beach, or take part in the wealth of boating, fishing, and swimming that abound in the area. And after a day of fun in the sun, you can take in the city's historic sites, including the ruined Tenby Castle and the 13th-century Tenby Town Walls, an epic stone fortification that surrounds much of the town.

Tenby's museums—don't go breaking my art

Tenby might be small, but it packs a serious wallop when it comes to art, culture, and history. At the Tenby Museum and Art Gallery, one of the oldest museums in the country, you can learn about the area's colorful past through a number of archaeological, geological, and biological exhibits. After that, you can check out Pembroke Castle, a massive waterfront fortress dating from the 11th century. And visitors of all ages will find something at Oakwood Theme Park, where you can enjoy roller coasters, thrill rides, and plenty of other games and entertainment.

Mild months in marvelous, maritime Tenby

Thanks to its northerly latitude and waterfront location, Tenby has an oceanic climate, with warm summers, cool winters, and regular wet stuff all year round. Summer temperatures range from 53 to 67 degrees in July and August. Winters are on the cool side, with highs around 49 degrees and lows in the upper 30s between December and March. A popular resort town for warm weather visitors, you'll find the summer is Tenby's busiest season. The colder winter months are your best bet for avoiding the crowds, but a Tenby vacation rental with a fireplace might be the way to go if you're considering a winter visit.

Tenby's wealth of wondrous waterfront wilderness

In a hilly area on the southern coast of Wales, Tenby lies along Carmarthen Bay, an inlet of the Atlantic just north of the Bristol Channel. Although the town itself is mostly urban and residential, it's surrounded by fields and farmland, and you can find a number of rivers, ponds, and inlets along the area's coastline. Just off shore, the hilly Caldey Island is home to rolling moorland, a Trappist monastery, and plenty of panoramic views of the surrounding bay; it also provides a habitat for seals and seabirds. With a Tenby vacation rental, you'll be surrounded by the platonic ideal of seaside Wales.
