Cwm-y-Eglwys in Newport, Pembrokeshire | Beaches in the UK


  • Pretty sandy cove
  • On coastal path
  • Great for kayaking & swimming
  • Car park & toilets

A pretty sandy cove, with a stream running through the middle, providing plenty of rock pools for intrepid explorers. Above the beach is the end wall of a tiny church, the rest was washed away in the enormous storm of 1859 that created all of Pembrokeshire’s pebble banks. There’s a 10ft high wall surrounding the top of the beach, making it very sheltered. Slipway down to beach. Clamber over rocks at the west end of the beach to find a secret low tide beach. There’s also a pebbly cove on the east side. Great for kayaking.
