This large, picturesque horseshoe shaped bay is generally well protected from the winds and waves that pound much of the Pembrokeshire coastline and is therefore a suitable place for beginners. The waves here are generally small and it is therefore not really a suitable beach for surfing. Windsurfers can however sail at high tide from Parrog beach but the currents from the river can be strong. It can be a good location for more advanced flat-water speed specialists too and for kitesurfers as there is a large amount of flat, shallow water. To find the beach follow the signs from Newport and the A487.
Free parking is available close to the beach and the usual seaside town amenities are also available.
