Why do so many families return to Newgale Campsite Year after Year?
Its not so much the campsite – although we think the facilities are pretty good. No, it’s simply that Newgale is the sort of place you fall in love with.
To some people it’s just a fantastic place to relax, to get away from it all. To others it’s an adventure playground of sand and sea. To many families it’s an inexpensive place to take the children on holiday – and the children certainly seem to have a great time.
From the campsite, you just cross the road then the pebble bank, and there it is – a mile long beach for building sandcastles, playing games, flying kites or just lying there. The sea is popular for surfing, canoes or swimming, and there’s often a lifeguard on duty in August.
There is a coastal bus service, but you’re best off with a car so you can pick up supplies in the local shop, a mile and a half away, or visit other places of interest.
If you like walking, you can take the Coastal Path north to Solva or south to Nolton Haven. The round trip to either village can be done easily in a day, including a break for lunch when you get there. In fact there are plenty of good eating places within a few miles of Newgale.
As you look out to sea from Newgale, you can see various islands including the nature reserves Skomer and Ramsey. Many different boat trips are available from different villages, including to Skomer from Martin’s Haven or to Ramsey from St Davids.
Who knows? Maybe Newgale is a place you’ll revisit many times.
