Caldey Island, (in Welsh, Ynys Byr), lies in Carmarthen Bay on the Welsh side of the Bristol Channel, just 2 miles south of the port of Tenby. The island is only 1.5 miles long and 1 mile across. Caldey was the home of Celtic monks from the 6th century and Benedictines from the 12th century. Today the monks are Trappists (Cistercians) from Belgium who farm the island and make chocolate, cream, yoghurt and perfume for sale to visitors. The watchtower, now the Chapel of our Lady of Peace, the old priory and the churches are open to the public, but only males are permitted to enter the monastery. From the hill on the island you get excellent views of the colonies of seals and seabirds on the island.
