Newgale Sands

Newgale Sands

Newgale is a popular surfing beach on Pembrokeshire's west coast. Approximately 2 miles long, the it's mostly fine sand backed by a storm bank of pebbles. Towards the southern end of Newgale is the small headland of Maidenhall Point which has a walk-through cave. Beyond it are smaller coves with rock-pools. Lifeguards patrol during summer.

Parking is at one of two P&D car parks positioned just behind the beach. Alternative parking is available in lay-bys on the descent into Newgale from Haverfordwest, and also on Welsh Road at the far southern end. The section of beach bounded by the two car parks is subject to dog restrictions from 1st May to 30th September. Facilities include a shop, a pub, a cafe, a camping site and toilets.

Surf conditions are usually reliable but it's best to avoid high water when the waves hit the pebble bank. It's suitable for beginners, and there's always plenty of space.
