Details

Accessibility:

There is a board walk over the pebbles but this involves two steps. Three car parks are available. The first one is immediately on your right. It has a rough surface of loose stones and two designated disability spaces surfaced with tarmac. Beside the spaces is a RADAR key toilet, outside there is a drinking water tap and a drinking fountain.

Two board walks run up to the top of the pebbles, ending in level viewing platforms. The board walk nearer the car park entrance has the steeper slope and the smaller platform, big enough for three wheelchairs. The one nearer to the toilet block has a gentle incline and could accommodate eight chairs. Neither platform has access to the sand, other than by scrambling down the pebble bank.

Brief Description:

The  sand beach at Newgale is nearly 2 miles long. After a big storm in 1859, Newgale beach was left with a large pebble bank on its land side.
