Newport Parrog beach

A delightful stretch of coastline. The Coast Path twists and turns its way round to the old lifeboat station, sometimes on the beach, sometimes on the road and at one point crosses a fantastic causeway built of slates laid in a herringbone pattern.

It’s possible to wade across the river near the yacht club to Newport Sands. The walk back around the ‘long way’ takes you alongside the estuary to the bridge.

Near here is Carreg Coetan, an exposed burial chamber.

There are a few small pebble beaches but swimming isn’t recommended here.

If you’re planning to visit, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of beach to play on and that you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide!
