Attraction Information

Almost 2 miles of soft sand fringed with a huge pebble bank deposited in a big storm in 1859! As well as welcoming happy families kitesurfing and surfing are popular on this beach too and tuition is available nearby... You can also get some good kite action here, plus walk right along to the southern end of the bay to discover a walk-through cave and numerous sheltered bays to charm the kids with a bit of isolation, or cross the river behind the pebble bank (opposite the cafe) to get access to some quiet low tide bays. At very low tide it's actually possible to walk round to Cwm Mawr beach but keep a mind and eye to the tide!

Dog restrictions apply to the middle third of the beach between the 1st May and 30th September and the centre third remains a dog free zone year round. They won the Seaside Award (Resort) 2015 and Blue Flag Beach 2015.

There are toilets available beachside plus lifeguards are on duty between the beginning of June through to the end of September.

Immediate vicinity amenities include a cafe and pub at the northern end of the beach plus a surf shop also offering surfing and kitesurfing tuition and board hire! There's a large camp site on the northern end of the beach and a range of accommodation nearby. At the southern end there's another cafe and beach shop, plus toilets and a static caravan park.

There is a railway station at Haverfordwest and The Puffin Shuttle bus service runs from St David's to Milford Haven 3 times a day, stopping at Newgale. There are also 3 car parks bordering the beach so you can't really go wrong! Phone number is for the local TIC.
