Newgale is a village with a three-mile stretch of beach in the parish of Roch, Pembrokeshire. The beach is situated in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and has rugged coastal scenery with the path winding up and down the cliffs.

Newgale is a 'Blue Flag' beach, which means it has the top certification for quality, cleanliness and facilities.[1]

The beach is backed by a large pebble wall or storm beach as defence against the high tides. Newgale is popular with holiday makers, windsurfers, surfers and canoeists throughout the summer months.

There are two caravan parks, a camping site, some shops and a pub, The Duke of Edinburgh Inn. The surf at Newgale is good for beginners, with the waves usually backing off a bit even on large swell. Surfing is best on the rising tide.

The beach is a favourite place for the local people, who promenade on Boxing Day every year.

Many campers on lower ground experience flooding during rain in the summer months.

Newgale appeared in the music video Delerium - Silence (Featuring Sarah McLachlan) 2004 [2] [3]

Newgale marks the boundary between traditionally English and Welsh-speaking Pembrokeshire, with the next beach north of Newgale being called Pen-y-Cwm.
