Newport Sands

Newport Sands

A broad, long beach at the mouth of the River Nevern.

This dune backed, sandy beach is plenty big enough for all your beach activities and at low tide, you can wade across the river to Newport Parrog.

It’s very popular with all kinds of watersports enthusiasts.

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!

Café and toilets. Newport provides all the amenities of a large village including galleries, a golf club and a National Park Visitor Centre.
