Newgale Beach is one of the most stunning locations in Pembrokeshire.

Based on the west coast of the county in the corner of St Bride’s Bay, Newgale Beach is characterised by golden sand, a high pebble bank and sloping cliffs on either side with rockpools and caves to explore next to a crystal-blue sea.

The beach is over 2.5 miles wide and is the perfect place for coastal explorers, families, surfers, and other water sport enthusiasts to spend their summer days.

Kayaking, kitesurfing, windsurfing are a few examples of the activities you can enjoy.

For families, the shallows in front of the sand means young children can play and get accustomed to the water.

However, as you might expect, it does get very windy by the Newgale coast, so windbreakers are advised when walking around the beach.

Newgale is not far from Haverfordwest and exists between Solva and North Haven. The beach is reachable by car using the postcode SA62 6AR, and once you arrive there are two different car parks signposted.

When driving from Haverfordwest, Newgale Beach is on the way to St Davids, making it the ideal pit stop for your journey too.

After all, there is plenty to explore in the areas around Newgale Beach such as the rest of St Brides Bay, the secluded spot of Druidston Bay, the charming Solva Harbour and Nolton Haven where you can ride horses on the beach.

In terms of facilities, Newgale Beach has public toilets, cafes, and surf shops on the both the north and south end. But the north end is where you will find most amenities for your day out.

The only downside to Newgale Beach is its accessibility for wheelchair users and parents with buggies as you need to cross the pebble bank to get to the sand.

Legend tells us the pebble bank was made from a mighty storm in 1859 and has protected the nearby village from the sea ever since.
