Newport Sands & Parrog Beach

Newport Sands

Newport Sands

is a wide sandy beach almost a mile long on the north side of the river Nevern. The car park is approximately 2½ miles from the A487 at Newport and is situated just behind the beach and access to the shore is down a slipway. Parking is also allowed on part of the beach. Free layby parking for 15 - 20 cars is available just outside of Newport village on either end of the bridge over the Nevern, from where the Wales Coast path follows the river to the beach. Beach facilities include toilets, drinking water, cycle stands and a cafe. Lifeguards are on duty from the end of June to early September.

The beach itself looks out towards Dinas Head and consists of dark sand backed by dunes, behind which is a golf course. To the north the foreshore becomes rocky with cliffs and a small waterfall at the northern end. Access to the coast path is possible here. At the southern end the sand continues around the point and for a short distance alongside the river Nevern. This area is more sheltered from the wind. On a low tide the river can be waded across at low tide to reach

Parrog Beach.

This is a small beach of sand, shingle and some mud. A car park is located just behind the beach, and there are toilets here.

Dogs are allowed on both beaches at all times. Surf conditions are best in Winter and Spring and at any stage of the tide, but the the surf here is inconsistent.

Newport village is a good 10 minute walk from Parrog Beach, and has a good selection of shops, cafes, hotels, B&B's and pubs.
