With 870 miles of stunning Welsh coastline and gorgeous, expansive beaches, we Welsh know our surfing - we even have our own Welsh Surfing Federation. The incredibly beautiful Atlantic coastline of Pembrokeshire boasts some ideal surf-friendly beaches – whether you’re an absolute beginner, or just want to catch some waves.
Pembrokeshire is Britain’s only coastal National Park and tops the UK rankings for Blue Flag beaches, guaranteeing clean gentle waves whatever the weather. The beautiful beaches tend to be quieter, which is ideal for beginners.
Freshwater West is an unspoilt beach that picks up all the swell, though its large waves are suited to more advanced surfers. Manorbier has a fantastic castle as its backdrop and suits everyone from beginners to advanced surfers. Newgale is good for children, and there is fantastic shelter in St Bride’s Bay.
