Things to do nearby
Along the front of Laugharne castle is a paved footpath that allows you to overlook the beautiful estary, see a variety of wildlife and leads to the boat house via three routes from footpath.
There are four ways to get here:
1. Walk from Pendine along the shore at low tide.
2. Take the coastal path from Pendine which involves a long steep ascent and descent.
3. From Pendine drive to the top of the hill and park near the junction with the Amroth road. Take the bridleway (track) on the west side of the road about 60 yards south of the bus shelter. This leads downhill through a wooded valley. Keep to the left of the stream all the way.
t low tide the patchy remains of a submerged forest can be seen, and the wreck of a schooner (the Rover) which went aground in 1886 (Grid Ref : SN198074).
Some parking is available at Marros village by St Lawrence's church, and access is along a public footpath (track) which runs from here to the coastal path, thence continuing down to the shore. The horizontal distance is about a mile, and the church is 448 feet above sea level. Its a Very steep and long walk back!
Harbour Beach is the safest for kids or use the easy access slipway to get down to Castle Beach. There's also Goscar Rock over on North Beach and if you're looking for somewhere to run around check out South Beach, the most spacious of Tenby's beaches.
