Pembrokeshire has some of the very best surf beaches in Wales, with breaks for every level of surfer. With little interruption of South Westerly swells beaches like Newgale and Freshwater West pick up any swell going. In bigger storm swells travelling a little further to beaches like Abermawr or Freshwater East will help you find more sheltered breaks, often with great offshore conditions when other sites are blown out. Despite the number of excellent spots, there will usually be somewhere to surf that the crowds haven't reached, and even the most popular tourist beaches like Whitesands and Newgale only become busy during the summer months. There's a great atmosphere in Pembrokeshire, with a relaxed surf culture. If the swell doesn't arrive then there are lots of other activities to keep you outdoors!
