The nearby Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The Miners Trail.
View from The Glen Beach Saundersfoot. Tenby Harbour at low tide.
Towards Wiseman's Bridge from The Glen Beach Saundersfoot. Just beyond Telpyn Beach.
Tenby in evening light. Night time at Tenby.
Amroth is a charming coastal village where time seems to have stood still. The beach is punctuated by a series of groynes that help protect the village from winter storms and rough seas. This beach and village mark the easterly end of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which winds its way for 186 miles past all the coves, beaches and cliffs of the Pembrokeshire National Park.

Wisemans Bridge Wisemans Bridge is wide and mostly sandy with some rocky stretches. Its claim to fame is that it was used in 1944 for rehearsals of the D Day landings under the watchful eye of Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill himself. At low tide it is possible to walk to neighbouring Saundersfoot.

Coppet Hall
A small sandy beach, with pebbles at the high tide line. Joined to the busier Saundersfoot, this is the best place to launch from for windsurfers and kitesurfers, with the best conditions being low tides when the wind is cleaner. There are a few clusters of rocks to look out for, which become submerged at high tide. Parking is available at Coppet Hall at a charge and all the amenities you could want can be found at Saundersfoot. The beach is alongside the B4316.

Saundersfoot This large, south east facing beach of golden sand is one of the most popular stretches of coastline in Pembrokeshire. Bathing here is generally safe, and Saundersfoot is very popular with families. Most windsurfers launch from Coppet Hall. Being a lively tourist beach, all the expected amenities are found close to the beach, including shops, cafes and ice cream parlours. There is disabled access to the beach, with disabled toilet facilities nearby. Dog restrictions are enforced between 1 May and 30 September, and lifeguards are on duty from the end of June to the end of September.
