Nolton Haven has an uncrowded sandy beach set between Newgale Sands and Broad Haven. The beach is located on the west coast of Pembrokeshire in St Brides Bay. Nolton Haven Beach is popular for boating, swimming, surfing, horse riding, fishing, and walking and as with many Pembrokeshire beaches, it is bordered by the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. Dogs are allowed. There is a pub and hotel closeby and a slipway on the beach.
Newgale Sands only 2.5 miles away is celebrated for its two-mile stretch of clean beach. It is particularly excellent for surfing with its huge Atlantic waves, also for windsurfing and kayaking. The beach is rimmed by a natural ridge of smooth pebbles which act as a flood defence at high tide. It is easy to access with wheelchairs and pushchairs. It is dog-friendly and has a nearby cafe, toilets, surfboard hire, and lifeguards.
Norton Haven is seven miles from Haverfordwest not the biggest town in Pembrokeshire, but the most populous, Haverfordwest is the central administrative hub of this region of Wales. Close to the Celtic Trail, and a good central Pembrokeshire base for access north up to the Preseli Hills and west towards St Brides Bay, Haverfordwest has one of the best local history museums in Pembrokeshire, plus there’s Haverfordwest Castle too! The town centre has an array of shops and a pleasantly converted quay (Haverfordwest was once a thriving port at the end of the river estuary). It is a bustling, busy town with plenty of restaurants, accommodation, pubs, and cafes here.
A quiet village, Nolton Haven’s beach is sheltered by steep cliffs. The village’s riding stables offers beach rides at nearby Druidston Haven. The perfect spot for a holiday, please browse our Pembrokeshire holiday cottages below.
