Visit St David's - lovely cathedral in rural setting and pretty little town.

If weather good, take a boat trip to Caldey Island which is farmed by monks who make perfume and other products http://www.caldey-island.co.uk/ (boat trips elsewhere available as well to see seals etc).

Lovely walks along the Pembrokeshire Coastal path

Beaches everywhere, south beach in Tenby is long enough for a decent walk and if you want to continue you can walk up to Giltar point and along the coast path towards Manorbier . The castle at Manorbier is cosy and there is a lovely valley with church behind the beach.

There's a good small museum and art gallery on Castle Hill in Tenby, there is an admission fee. The Caldey boats don't run on Sundays, but Caldey's certainly worth a visit if the weather is decent.

Pembroke castle is an impressive serious castle and there is another good walk following the coast from Saundersfoot, either to Wiseman's Bridge or as far as Amroth if you're keen.

A little late maybe, but if you have time and require further ideas, pop in to the Tourist Information Centre or Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Centre in Tenby... lots of ideas available - some of the main ones as mentioned.

Hope you enjoy/ed your visit! ;)
