Penally Station to Tenby South Beach

Short Walk

DISTANCE: 661 yards (605m).
UBLIC TRANSPORT: Arriva trains (wheelchair accessible) Service bus 349 Haverfordwest/Pembroke/Tenby (NOT wheelchair accessible).
CHARACTER: Walkway to beach.

The walk starts at the car park by the railway station. The first 490 metres is a level tarmac path with a bench halfway.

The tarmac path crosses the railway line at the level crossing by means of two kissing gates (suitable for wheelchair access) and continues across the golf course to finish at a view point in the dunes.

There are two short gradients to climb up to the viewpoint.

Please note that there is no access to the beach from the viewpoint. Just before the viewpoint, the path turns to the right to pass through the dunes to the beach.

This section of the path is 115 metres long and has a compacted stone surface with gentle undulating gradients. The final 20 metres can sometimes be covered by soft sand, depending on the level of the beach.  There are toilets in the car park.
