Nolton Haven is a small sheltered bay south of Newgale. A free car park is located just behind the beach from where access to the shore is down a short concrete slipway. The beach is mostly sand, flanked by high cliffs of sandstones, siltstones and coal veins. It's a good beach for sunbathing and swimming at high to mid tide but rips can occur on a low tide, especially on the northern side of the bay. Lifeguards are on duty from the end of June to early September, and dogs are allowed at all times. Facilities include toilets, cycle stands and a pub/hotel (The Mariner's Inn).
