The Western side of the beach, marks the beginning of the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which winds its way for 186 miles past each of the splendid coves, beaches and cliffs of the Pembrokeshire National Park.
Parking and facilities at Amroth are both good.
Tenby North Beach consists of a sweep of golden sand, with occasional rocks dotting the beach, including the prominent Goscar Rock. The harbour and castle are at the southern end of the beach which is well sheltered from the prevailing winds. North beach is very popular with families with plenty of space for beach games. Dog restrictions are put in place between 1st May and 30th September, banning dogs from North Beach. 
The mile long stretch of flat, golden sand that is Tenby South Beach is a firm favourite with holidaymakers. Plenty of space for a game of beach cricket or football as well as chasing a Frisbee! The beach is also popular with water sports enthusiasts as it is more exposed than Tenby North beach, it offers better surfing, windsurfing and kite-surfing conditions. Dog restrictions apply below the cliffs, east of the beach car park, between the 1st May and 30th September.

The two coves are separated by a tall thin limestone ridge. At low tide it is possible to walk around the ridge, but only for a short period of time.
