Tenby – a place like if from a picture book
*Tenby is a tiny seaside resort on the South Wales coast, right on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. A place like from a picture book. The people here are very communicative. It is easy to start a conversation. So I learned that in summer the population triples because of the many tourists. Now in the autumn, harmony had returned.
Every 12 hours, the harbor runs dry because of the low tide.
Charming beach sections with golden sandy beaches.
However, the weather can be unpredictable at this time of the year. It alternated between sunshine, drizzle, and heavy showers every minute. The seagulls do not mind that. They always seem to be elegantly carried by the wind.
Along the Coast: The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path
Tenby is on one of the most scenic trails along the coast, the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. We went the day’s stage to Manorbier and were thrilled. Many shelters are not there on the track. So you should start equipped accordingly.
The trail starts along the long beach heading north. The coastal path is wonderful and always exciting. It goes through gates over cow and sheep pastures, through jungle alike areas and beach sections, up and down along the cliffs with lots of fantastic views.
The way is best described. And the slope is easy to handle. Care must be taken only if it is raining. Do not slip on muddy sticks.
In the afternoon we arrived tired in Manorbier. After a break on the beach, it started to rain. The train only goes every 2 hours and we just missed the bus. But you can pass the waiting time in the castle of Manorbier.
Late I realized that the station was half an hour’s walk outside the village. In a goose step, we hurried there and just managed it.
In the evening – back in Tenby – we found a pub in the alleys of the nice town. Here was beer and cider from the tap and simple food, for example, steak and ale pie.
Brexit or not, Great Britain is worth a trip in the fall. In Wales and especially in Tenby, we felt very comfortable and would love to come back and continue on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
