Got into Tenby in motorhome quite early on Easter Saturday so found parking spot easily, but getting out later was emotional! Walked into town for nice brekky, then caught first boat at 1000 to island. Price now 14 quid! Yomped straight up to trig, took pics, then made it back down to jetty to be the only tourist riding back so early. Just over an hour all round.

A surprisingly high mark for me for a trig point that's not on top of a mountain but a great experience coming out here to this lovely island and walking across to the trig point and lighthouse. I kept looking out for a footpath down onto the beach from the lighthouse that I thought I had seen marked on a map earlier on in the visit. Turns out the map on the notice boards has South at the top - weird!

My first visit to a trig point by boat. Lovely island and not too crowded as we caught the first ferry over. Misty and wet but still enjoyed the visit.

Cannot claim this as a find for PK Bathrooms but a colleague was on the island yesterday and sent me the photo so logging it to show that it still exists.

Extra point for being on an island, and a lovely island at that. Pillar found in good condition despite loggers split 50/50 between 'good' and 'slightly damaged'. The only reason that I can see for that is the missing plug, which does not affect the functionalitly of the pillar. Other than a missing cap and no plug, rear sight hole is open and LHD side plug has degraded to point where it's partially open. Extensive views N, S & W; E obscured by nearby lighthouse.

Wonderfully located pillar on south side of Caldey Island, adjacent to the lighthouse. Wonderful views across the Bristol Channel on a glorious day. The plug is missing but otherwise I could see no reason to log this as 'slightly damaged' so I've logged it as 'good'. No paint. N/W sight holes open. Concrete base exposed at grass level all round. Possibly the nearest trig point to a chocolate factory?? What's not to like about that!!

Boat trip from Tenby Harbour beach - 01834 844453 - 12. Park in multi-storey car park in town (3) about half a mile away (needed GPS to find my way back!). Regular crossings to and from the island and free to return on any boat. Island occupied by monks who are quite enterprising - gift shops, cafe, museum and chocolate factory. Lovely mown grass walkways on immaculately looked after island. Well worth a visit with plenty to do and see (besides the trig!)

A very interesting island to visit, with the pillar and lighthouse, an intersected station, in close proximity above the south coast with great views over to Lundy and distant Somerset and Devon.

It was an overcast day with the threat of rain and so the island was much quieter than would be expected for this time of the year. I began by exploring the village and east side of the island before heading up to the lighthouse and trig point. Unfortunately because of the weather there was no chance of getting to see the Gower Peninsula to the east, but, even still, it was a good place to be with dramatic sea cliffs on Caldey Island rising up to the west. All too soon I had to return to the mainland and Tenby.

A consolation Island visit after my Ramsey Island trip was cancelled with half an hours notice. Boat from Tenby (first one at 10.30 no boats Sunday) (11.00 per adult). Lovely locaton for a pillar and an interesting island.....early boat guarantees some peace and quiet. Pillar very good condition.

vgc, no cap or plug, by path just W of lighthouse. Quite a busy touristy island; access to the wilder W end is discouraged, but I wasn't the only visitor that day to indulge :-). Boats every 30 mins, from by St Catherines Island. CLOSED SUNDAYS.
