Newport Bay, Pembrokeshire, Wales.

On the North Pembrokeshire Coast.

With cliffs and a sheltered inlet, Newport Bay is a great summer destination for families, beach sport enthusiasts and boaters.
There is ample space for windsurfing, kayaking and sailing in the bay with many small coves and caves to explore and with six beaches all within four miles of each other, there is ample space for relaxing and soaking up the sun.

Sheltered by Dinas Head and Morfa Head, Newport Bay is also a very picturesque setting. During the summer the sun sets smack bang in the middle of the two headlands and provides some great photo opportunities for professionals and amateurs alike.

Looking west from Newport Parrog

There are plenty of good fishing spots, both from rocks and out in the bay. The kids can have a great time exploring the rock pools which can be found by heading west from The Parrog at Newport or a day spent crabbing from the quay walls behind Newport Boat Club usually goes down a treat with them too.

Legends tell of Pirate ships in the mist and caves of hidden booty at Newport Bay, long forgotten rum houses along the quay walls at The Parrog in Newport and of caves that lead to Newport Castle from the base of the cliffs.
During the 1980's a hidden room buried in a beach at one of the coves north of Newport Sands was discovered with hoards of inflatable boats, engines and radio equipment inside of it. Beware ye all, there be pirates in these waters!
