My favourite beach.
On arrival in Pembrokeshire excitement increases as you anticipate that first glimpse of the dramatic coastline at Newgale.
Approaching from the south over top the brow of the hill and Newgale’s northern end suddenly comes into view – it’s heartlifting!
It’s stunning at any time of the day or season of the year – in summer the sea sparkles and swells; in winter the low brooding clouds can terrify and overwhelm.
After a long day of games, sandcastles, walking or running along the shore, body-boarding, flying kites and enjoying the wide open spaces that Newgale’s miles of beach offer, there can be nothing more relaxing than watching the sun slip over the horizon.
Sunsets at Newgale are of the utmost beauty; its west-facing shores and breathtaking expanse of sand, edged with rugged rocks, provide the perfect setting.
I love to stand in the sea, bathed in the last rays of the sun as they turn from gold to silver – this fills me with a sense of sublime peace to sustain me until my next visit. Year after year I have been drawn to these sunsets and have gone home with renewed perspectives and spirits restored. There is always plenty of wildlife to see too – the southern end cliffs are busy with seabirds in Spring.
I am lucky to live in Pembrokeshire now and spent 18 months within a mile of Newgale – tell us about your favourite part of the coast below and we will feature it.
