“A stunning beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Stopped here on the way back from St David's as it looked so enticing from the road. The beach itself stretches for over a mile and the sand is firm to walk on once the tide has gone out. There are some pebbles and rocks in it but nothing to make walking difficult. There is also very little rubbish on the beach which was good to see.

As others have said there is a pebble bank to negotiate between the car park and the beach - there are boardwalks up to the top of the bank but you then have to find your way down the other side (there are obvious slopes where others have flattened the pebbles). The trick then is to find the easy way back up from the beach.

There are toilets available in the car park and a cafe at either end of the beach.

“Very tricky (see review) but A Beautiful Beach to be on”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

A very tricky almost dangerous beach to get on to, there are no steps or wheelchair access to get to the beach.
A high wall of pebbles have been placed right across the front of the beach to protect the area when storms are active (which is a brilliant idea) but more thought should have been sorted for beach approach, certainly steps and wheelchair access.
To sum up: a very safe beach for children and adults alike but very dangerous when approaching the speech by foot and when returning back to the car park. (there is a fee to pay for parking only)
If this work was completed hi would have put five-star is no hesitation.

“A great beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

A bit of a scramble over the large pebbles to get down to the sand but once down the bank, when the tide is out there is acres of sand (especially as all the sand washed away in the winter storms now seems to be coming back in.) In winter it is great to park at the one end of the beach then walk north along to the northern tip and pop into the sands café (dogs allowed on the lino floored sections) for a brunch or a lovely own blend dark drinking chocolate.

“One of my favourite beaches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Newgale beach is one of my favourite beaches. I have visited Newgale since I was a child. It has never changed and I keep going back there. It’s a wonderful beach for families.
The beach is only a short walk over the pebbles from the car park, the camp site, the pub, the surf shop and the cafe. The beach is clean; and the water is clear. There are plenty of rock pools to explore too.
The beach is very popular with surfers, kite surfers, wind surfers and kayakers. I enjoy kayaking from Newgale; there is so much to explore in just a small area. Kayaks, surf boards etc. are available for hire from the surf shop.
