In this 'you may also like' section we attempt to answer what else can I do? Here you have a list by order of being the closest some more beaches, things to see and do, places to eat and upcoming events.
- Newport Sands is in Cardigan Bay, facing the Irish Sea and is also known as Traethmawr. This 1.5 km beach is a broad, long, flat, sand dune backed beach at the mouth of the River Nevern. At low tide you can wade across the river to Parrog. The cliffs to the north are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Very popular with all kinds of watersports. Facilities include a car park, toilets, cafe and seasonal lifeguards.
- Parrog beach is a small beach with mainly pebbles and rock pools and some sand at low tide. The beach is separated from the much larger Newport Sands by the estuary of the River Nevern. Parrog is not a great swimming beach as the currents can be unpredictable. Car parking, toilets, cafe, slipway. We have no dog information for Parrog beach.
- Pentre Ifan is the name given to an ancient manor house with a well-preserved Neolithic dolmen, or burial chamber in Nevern, Pembrokeshire. Dating back to around 3,500 BC, there are several stones from the main chamber that are still in position with other stones scattered around. The site was excavated on two occasions, in the 1930s and the 1950s. Now owned and maintained by Cadw, the Welsh Historic Monuments Agency, admission to Pentre Ifan is free.
- Pwllgwaelod beach is small cove with dark sand and shingle that looks out across Fishguard Bay. There are low rocks on both sides with rockpools to explore. Facilities include car parking, toilets, pub and slipway.You can walk to Cwm yr Eglwys on the other side of Dinas island.
- Pwllcrochan beach is a dark sandy beach but this disappears at high tide. The rocks and cliffs are under constant battering by the sea so caution should be taken in exploring this beautiful remote bay. The name Pwllcrochan translates to ‘Cauldron pool’. The beach has no facilities, access is tricky down a steep path and care needs to be taken to make sure you are not cut off when the tide comes in. Access is on foot from the coastal path with the best options for parking on the roadside at Abermawr Bay Beach to the south or at Pwll Deri to the north.
- Abermawr Bay beach is sand/shingle with a pebble bank and at low tide you can see tree stumps from the remains of an ancient forest. The beach is backed with marsh and woodlands which form Abermawr Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and is also part of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park No facilities although a small number of parking spaces exists at the end of the lane to the north of the bay. The beach is managed by the National Trust.
