Newport sands is a terrific beach, it’s quiet and generally only locals use it. There is also plenty of sand to make sand castles! It’s a really clean beach and if you fancy a spot of sailing, there is a boat club across the estuary, which is situated on the Parroge. If you fancy a few days there and you’re on a shoe string budget. There’s a camp site right on the Parroge.
