Activit beach

The Parrog

You can walk from the house to the Parrog, a sheltered sand and shingle beach. This is a popular spot for exploring rock pools and crab fishing with the kids. The beach has a free car park, clean and well-maintained public toilets, a café and shop. Events are often held here, such as fireworks displays, BBQs, regattas and fun charity fundraisers. 

Traeth Mawr or Newport Sands

At low tide you can wade from the Parrog to Traeth Mawr, a vast expanse of sand backed by impressive dunes.  It’s the perfect beach for sunbathing, water sports and beach games.

Just a five-minute drive from Seren Y Gogledd, Traeth Mawr has a large car park, public toilets and a shop/café selling tea, coffee, ice cream, snacks etc.  Dogs are welcome, even in the summer. 

And as this is Pembrokeshire, if you want to travel to beaches further afield you’ll be spoilt for choice.
