Newgale beach is famous for its two mile stretch of gloriously golden sand backed by a ridge of pebbles. With its ‘large surf’, it is considered by many one of the best places to take to the board. Walk right down to the southern end to find a walk-through cave and numerous sheltered bays or cross the river at the back of the pebble bank opposite the cafe at the north end to gain access to several low tide bays. At very low tide it’s possible to walk round to Cwm Mawr beach but keep an eye on the tide.
