Newgale is one of the most famous beaches on St Bride's Bay in Pembrokeshire. It is almost 2 miles of sand backed by a huge pebble bank which was formed after a big storm in 1859. It is a mecca for kitesurfing and surfing with tuition available. At the southern end is a walk-through cave and numerous sheltered bays.
At the northern end, to the rear of the pebble bank it is possible to gain access to several low tide bays. At very low tide it’s possible to walk round to Cwm Mawr beach but do keep an eye on the incoming sea.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs along the beach and a walk up onto the cliffs at either end provides stunning views over St Bride's Bay.
The beach has won Seaside Award (Resort) 2014 and Blue Flag Beach 2014.
There are car parks, toilets, cafés, gift shops and surf shops around the beach area and lifeguards are on duty between the start of June and the end of September.
Part of the beach is always dog-friendly, but dog restrictions apply to the middle third of the beach between the 1st May and 30th September.
