1) Eat Fish and Chips wrapped in newspaper
No trip to Pembrokeshire is complete without indulging in some delicious seaside fayre and rather than eating on a plate, it tastes so much better out of the paper on the beach.

2) Take the perfect holiday snap
Tenby is picture postcard pretty, making it a great place for budding photographers to hone their craft. From Jubilee Park, with its stunning views over the towns, to Tenby Harbour, there are plenty of places to take pictures to impress friends back home with.

3) Swim in the sea
Tenby is famed for its safe, sandy beaches and has been awarded three blue flags. Its three beaches are patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months as well.

4) Fly a kite
Teach your grandchildren to fly a kite on one of Tenby's three spacious beaches - perfect for kite flying and other beach games.

5) Find a crab in a rockpool
Animal enthusiasts can spend hours exploring Tenby's beaches and rock pools, watching these fascinating creatures going about their daily business.

6) Beach riding
While on holiday why not try riding a horse or pony along one of the beaches? Much more interesting that a riding school...

7) Try chocolate made by monks
On Caldey Island, a short boat ride from Tenby, the Cisterian Monks who live there produce and sell their own chocolate. Not to be missed!

8) Re-create a battle scene
At Battlefield Live Pembrokeshire, a laser combat game experience, infra-red is used so no one gets hurt, while the youngsters can run around in the purpose-built jungle themed woodland.

9) Feed a giraffe
Aspiring zoo-keepers can feed a giraffe or a penguin at Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo. The experience includes an opportunity to meet the animals, take a tour of their enclosures and prepare their meal before feeding time.

10) Visit an ancient castle
The magnificent Carew Castle has a history spanning 2,000 years. Set in a stunning location, the castle displays the development from a Norman fortification to an Elizabethan country house.
