A large expanse of golden sand backed by sand dunes and a golf course make this a popular beach.
Windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing are all possible in the waters here but care should be taken of the currents around the mouth of the River Nevern, especially after heavy rains. The NW-facing beach is quite exposed making for ideal windsurfing conditions.
Access is via well signposted minor roads from the A487 to the east of the centre of Newport. There is a large National Park car park above the beach and limited parking on the sand (there is a charge for parking in the summer months). There are toilets, a lifeguard station with inshore rescue boats, manned in summer months and basic lifesaving equipment above the beach at other times of year.
