One of the longest beaches in Wales, the two-mile sweep of Newgale is about 10 minutes drive from St David’s, and is popular with families, dogs (restrictions in summer), surfers, kitesurfers, and just about everyone else who knows a top beach when they see one. Despite this, you can still get away from the crowds if you’re prepared to walk a little. And in case you’re wondering, the huge pebble bank above the beach was thrown there by a mighty storm in 1859.
Newgale is only too pebbly if you visit at high tide - from an hour or so after high until and hour or so before you'll have up to two miles of sand to play on - surely enough for anyone?!
Always popular with surfers, I wouldn't go there just to sit on the beach though or for paddling. It is a good place to start a walk. watch out for speed cameras as you arrive.
This is a great beach for surfers, as the review says. It has St Davids' coast's most reliable surf – and two very good surf schools. But if you're not surfing, it's not a beach to spend the day – it's too big, too windy and exposed, and too pebbly. I'd head for the beaches around St Davids, or Druidstone, or Marloes, any day.
