Newgale Dark Sky Discovery Site

Newgale is a long south west-facing beach with several parking areas along it. The recommended location is on the beach off the southern ‘Pebbles’ car park.

However, the beach is unsuitable for less able users and the car park affords an alternative viewing site. Views are good in all directions with a clear unobstructed view much of the sky, away from major sources of skyglow, but there are a few visible light sources in direct sight. In summer, a boardwalk path opposite the car park leads to the crest of the shingle bank.
