Newgale is vast and great for
everything but especially surfing, kite surfing and bodyboarding.
There is a surf school there. Hire it all from there. At the far
end of the beach is a cafe and there are public toilets in the
first car park and next to the pub. Wonderful to walk along when
the tide is out. Good for Bass fishing.
Pen y cwm can be reached either from Newgale beach when
the tide is out but don't get trapped by the incoming tide, or
by walking down from the road.
It's a lovely walk and the beach is worth it. Lots of rock pools
etc. No facilities.

Iron Age Fort along coast towards St
Whitesands is the
other side of St Davids and similarly is renowned for surfing.
It has a cafe, toilets, wet suit hire etc. Fabulous spot for
sunsets especially if you climb up to the summit of the
mountain/hill there. You have to pay to park in summer.
Caerfai beach is down a left turn just as you come into
St David's. The views from the car park at the top are
wonderful. It's a short walk down to the beach. No facilities.
Porthgain is very interesting. Excellent Fish restaurant
and wonderful old pub. Rub shoulders with the famous.
Abbereidy is a bit more of a drive but is completely
different as its all slate. It is the home of the Blue Lagoon,
an old quarry with deep water. The challenge is to jump off
various ledges into the water. Not for the faint hearted!
Popular with coasteering groups. From Abbereidy you can walk
cliff to Barry Island beach which cannot be accessed by car and
is down a steep metal staircase. Not good if you don't like
heights but a fabulous beach. Be careful of currents. No
facilities at all.
