Tenby North Beach is a wide sandy beach backed by a sea wall and high cliffs, with Goscar Rock in the centre of the beach. At the southern end is Tenby's much-photographed harbour, which has a small sheltered sandy beach at the back. Access is either by walking down one of the many paths and steps from The Croft or alternatively walking along the sea wall or beach from Tenby harbour. There is some roadside parking on The Croft, but these spaces are quickly taken. Tenby's large North Beach car park (P&D) is located off the A478 (The Norton) and connected to The Croft via a walkway, and thence via a long flight of steps (about 135) to North Beach.
Snacks, takeaways and ice creams are available and toilets and drinking water are available at the back of the beach. The cliffs provide good shelter for sunbathing, and it's generally a safe beach for swimming. On some low tides, it's possible to walk along the shore to Waterwynch Bay, passing two small coves which are rather unimaginatively named First Bay and Second Bay. Only on exceptionally low tides is it possible to walk in the opposite direction around to Castle Beach.
Lifeguards patrol from late June until early September and a total dog ban operates on North Beach and the harbour area from 1st May to 30th September.
Tenby has excellent facilities including two information centres, pubs, cafes, hotels, shops, a supermarket and a railway station (about 10 - 15 minutes walk).
