Newport Parrog beach

Great for rock pools and at low tide it is possible to wade across to Newport Sands but this stretch has strong tides and is not recommended for swimming. The coast path runs along the beach here and is worth exploring in either direction.

Newport Sands Beach

Traeth Mawr 'big beach' commonly referred to as Newport Sands is across the estuary from Newport town and below Newport golf club. To walk to it from the town, cross the bridge over the estuary and take the first track on your left to hug the riverside along to the beach. Round the dunes you will find a beautiful stretch of beach with shallow bathing.

Comments

There is a great section of the Pembrokeshire coast path from Newport to Moylegrove with the return either on foot or by bus and a bike ride along lovely lanes to Cardigan

The sand dunes have a wide range of wild flowers such as the Common Spoted Orchid
