Swanlake Bay is not an official naturist
beach, but there are some naturists
who use it.
The bay is best approached from East
Moor Farm, where the owners have
provided limited car parking with an
“Honesty Box”.
Go throu the farm and follow the
coastal path signs, the bay is
relatively isolated but it is overlooked
by the pembrokeshire coastal path. 
The rock formations to the left of the beach are a great view.

The upper end opens out into a grassy doline, steps and handrails have been provided. The beach is sandy, beautiful and captivating with a few prominent features of rocks which are covered in all different kinds of shells. There is another cave called the Droch, here an entrance 20 feet wide and 50 feet high opens out into a chamber 60 feet wide and 60 feet high. 
Well worth a visit.

tenby harbour beach-st julian,s chapel

Tenby Harbour is a working
fishing harbour.
Around the harbour there are
old stone buildings with converted
fishermen,s cottages, together with
St Julian,s Chapel.
St Julian,s Chapel stood dominant
and was a feature at the end of the
old quay in the 19th century.

All fishermen would assemble in the
old St Julian,s Chapel before setting
off for the fishing grounds, prayers
were offered for a good catch and tithes of fish and oysters were paid to the clergyman in return for his services.
The Chapel was destroyed in 1842, but the New St Julian,s Chapel was built by all the fishing community in 1878, it is still referred to as the fisherman,s chapel.
The chapel is open to the public during the summertime and well worth a visit, it is very unique and special inside, there is a donation box if you would like to take home a souvenir. Also beautiful surroundings.
