The sea-front with its Victorian pier and elegant
Esplanade is Penarth's primary tourist attraction.
The town's coastal location is what really sets
Penarth apart from any other pleasant provincial
town. And an essential element of this environment
is the long expanse of beach
a mixture of rocks
pebbles and sand
backed by steep cliffs containing
the geologically important rock formation known as
the 'Penarth Groupí.
