Details

A pleasant boat trip from Tenby Harbour or Castle Beach takes you to this beautiful and fascinating island.

It is now owned by monks of the Cistercian Order, whose picturesque monastery overlooks the Village Green and the pretty cottages of the islanders.

In the village you can buy the perfumes, chocolate and shortbread made on the island. The Village Post Office is also a museum giving an interesting insight into Caldey's history. Postcards and special covers are franked with the Caldey Island handstamp.
