Beach Overview

Newgale beach is one of the biggest and most popular beaches in Pembrokeshire. With a stunning two miles of sand it’s a hit with every type of visitor.

A tall pebble bank that shields the village and road behind backs the long stretch of Blue Flag sand, which is revealed at lower tides. The pebble bank is said to have been created during the great storm of 1859 that lashed the Pembrokeshire coast. At high tide, the beach can entirely vanish so it is important to check tide times.

More Information

The beach is also known for strong intermittent currents, so caution is always advised.

This west facing beach catches the wind and so is exceptionally popular with wind and kite surfers.

Easy Access?

Access to the beach is over the large bank of pebbles, so not for the infirm. There is a slight path that runs from the car park to the beach, which may enable easier access.
