Parrog Beach - Dyfed

The small town of Newport lies on the Pembrokeshire coastline, not far from the beautiful Preseli hills and at the mouth of the river Nevern.

To the north of the river is the wide expanse of Newport Sands, while in front of the town is the small sand and mud beach of Parrog, which doubles up as the village's harbour.


This part of Cardigan Bay is an excellent destination for walkers, with the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path passing close by, offering some stunning cliff-top views. There is a golf course behind the beach, as well as plenty of places to eat, drink and stay to be found in Newport.
