Pen-y-Cwm Beach (Pwll March)

Pen-y-Cwm Beach - Pembrokeshire

Pen-y-Cwm beach is located around a small headland from the better known Newgale beach. In fact this is probably the easiest way to reach the beach as it is accessible across the sand at mid to low tide.

The beach itself has plenty of sand, although there are a lot of rocks around the shoreline. This is good news for explorers as there are any number of rockpools. There is also a cave at the southern end of the beach.

The beach is mostly backed by high, steep sandstone and shale cliffs. However, these dip down to form an access point where a footpath runs down the valley from Penycwm.
