Saundersfoot, a seaport village in St Issell's parish, Pembrokeshire, on Carmarthen Bay, 3 miles N of Tenby. It had only three houses about 1821, is now a considerable and a pretty place, has a good pier harbour formed in 1829-32, exports much coal, and has a post, money order, and telegraph office (R.S.O.), and a station on the Pembroke and Tenby railway. It has become a rising watering-place, with hotels and lodging-houses, and has good sands and picturesque and diversified environs. Petty sessions for the Narberth division are held at the police station.
