"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Newgale Sands Beach

Newgale Sands is famous for its two mile stretch of gloriously golden sand.  With its 'large surf', it is considered by many one of the best places to take to the board.  Bathers should take note of the flags, especially in high tide.  The beach is backed by a natural ridge of pebbles which act as a flood defence at high tide.  With easy access for wheelchairs and pushchairs, plus excellent facilities, seaside activities and walks, this really is a beach with something for everyone.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
