Caldey Island, Pembrokeshire, UK

Description

Caldey Island, Caldey Island, Pembrokeshire

Caldey Island lies off the Pembrokeshire coast near Tenby in south-western Wales.

Separated from the mainland by Caldey Sound, a ferry service runs between Tenby and Caldey Island during the spring and summer months.

Caldey is probably best known for its monastery, Caldey Abbey, with the current building dating from 1910. However, a monastery was founded on the island in the 6th century so the island has known a community of monks for centuries.

Visitors today can explore the historic Old Priory and the medieval churches of St David and St Illtud, as well as browse the village shops where perfume, chocolate and shortbread made on the island is sold.
