Short Walks in Pembrokeshire: Tenby and the south

Dennis and Jan Kelsall have chosen 15 of the best short walks in south Pembrokeshire, including Tenby. Each walk comes with easy-to-read Ordnance Survey maps, clear route description and lots of images, plus information on beauty spots and refreshment stops. No challenging terrain or complicated navigation means walks can be enjoyed by everyone.


Spring brings wildflowers and nesting seabirds to the cliffs, while autumn is the time for seals to give birth to their pups. In summer, everyone traditionally heads for the beach, but with generally mild winters, there are enjoyable days to be had throughout the year.


Amroth, Saundersfoot, Tenby, Pembroke, Milford Haven


Alternating between beach and cliff inevitably means ups and downs, but nothing is overly demanding and you can always pause to admire the view. The routes follow generally clear, established paths and require little more than common sense and basic fitness to get around.

Must See

Tenby, Saundersfoot and Amroth are long-established, traditional holiday resorts that have lost none of their traditional charm. Dale, Manorbier, Marloes, Broad Haven and Stackpole boast fine beaches too, with additional attractions that include island boat trips, the famous lily ponds and a castle. There's another castle and rare tidal mill at Carew and an unusual cliff chapel at St Govan's. The cliff-top scenery is spectacular throughout with many secluded coves to discover.

By Dennis Kelsall

Dennis and Jan Kelsall have long held a passion for countryside and hill walking. Since their first Cicerone title was published in 1995, they have written, contributed and illustrated over 50 guides to some of Britain’s most popular walking areas and have become regular contributors to various outdoor magazines. Their enjoyment of the countryside extends far beyond a love of fresh air, open spaces and scenery. Over the years Dennis and Jan have developed a wider interest in the environment, its geology and wildlife, as well as an enthusiasm for delving into local history, which so often provides clues to interpreting the landscape.
