Sightseeing
Nolton Haven is a small, fairly sheltered cove, nestled in the quaint and peaceful village of Nolton. The beach is quiet and unspoilt, made up of sand and shingle - younger ones, don’t forget to pack your net and bucket - you’ll have hours of fun checking out the many rock pools. Swimmers should take care, as there are strong currents off Nolton Haven. If you are planning a visit, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of beach to play on and that you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide.

Across the road from the beach, there is a small retail park with facilities such as shops and places to eat. Fishguard and Goodwick Railway Station is a short walk from the beach.

Local people justifiably call Tenby the prettiest seaside town in Wales. The original town was called Dinbych y Pysgod, the Welsh for "little town of fishes". It was built by the Normans as a fortified town and most of the old town walls remain but only a small keep tower of the castle remains. Regular boat trips run from Tenby harbour to Caldey Island. This is a conservation area owned by the Cistercian Order and has an active monastery. Nesting seabirds including Puffins can be seen on the tip of the island. Fun, pedal and banana boats can be hired from Tenby Harbour Beach along with mackerel fishing and paragliding trips. The Tourist Information Centre is located next to the multi storey car park and there is a Visitor Centre by "Five Arches", one of the gateways into the old town.
