Not far from Newgale Sands is Porthmynawyd, yet another idyllic little Pembrokeshire cove which only really comes into its own as the tide goes out. Then you will find a lovely stretch of golden sand flanked by cliffs which offer some shelter from the wind.
The cove here is generally a good spot for a swim, although given its remoteness care should be taken. There is also a cave exposed at low tide which is worth exploring along with the rockpools.
Porthmynawyd is somewhat off the beaten track requiring a hike along a valley and through the fields of Pointz Castle Farm to get to. This means the little beach is never crowded and often empty.

I swam here approaching full tide

Lovely, magical little secluded beach. I swam here in sunshine just before heavy shower and hailstones on May 11. 2021. I’ll admit it I swam nude, no one else except my wife around.
