No mention of April Fools, please…

We could tow the island out to sea!

Part 2

St Catherine’s Island is a small tidal island that is linked to Tenby by Castle beach at low tide and only partially accessible during each day. The island, which is known colloquially as St Catherine’s Rock, is the location of St Catherine’s Fort, which sits atop the island rock, and was constructed in 1867. It operated as a zoo and menagerie between 1968 and 1979.
