CaldeyVillageYour stay in Tenby would not be complete without a visit to Caldey Island.  Situated on the South Pembrokeshire coastline boat trips run to and from the island every 15 minutes from 9.30 am until 5.00 pm Monday to Friday, and on Saturdays from mid May until mid September.

The Cistercian monks of Caldey Island continue a traditional practice which began there in Celtic times. Over a thousand years of prayer and quiet living have made this remote & beautiful island a haven for tranquility and peace. The monks and islanders are always pleased to welcome visitors to share the delights of their island home during the summer season.

Caldeyroute2Tickets are available from the Caldey Island kiosk at Tenby harbour entrance ( 01834 843545 ). The twenty-minute trip leaves visitors at the landing spot on the beautiful Priory beach.

You can explore the historical Old Priory and the medieval churches St David & St Illtud, or join a free guided walk for an even closer look at Caldey island’s heritage.
