Caldey Island

Located just a few miles off the Pembrokeshire coast, Caldey Island is a blissfully peaceful place with almost no motor vehicles and a very low population. The boat ride from Tenby takes about 45 minutes. Caldey is famous for its monastry which may be toured (women are not permitted in the monastry), and a shop selling perfume made by the monks. At the centre of the small village is a green with a cafe.

Wild flowers, ducks and many types of butterfly make Caldey Island a must for nature lovers. The more energetic may take a walk to the lighthouse and beyond to see the cliff dwelling birds and possibly seals, too.


These pictures were taken a few years ago on a boat trip that went round Caldey, but did not land on it. Click on the images for larger versions and captions.
