Newgale (Welsh: Niwgwl) is a village with a three mile stretch of beach in the parish of Roch, Pembrokeshire. The beach is situated in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and has rugged coastal scenery with the path winding up and down the cliffs.

Newgale is one of over 40 Welsh 'Blue Flag' beaches, which means it has the top certification for quality, cleanliness and facilities. Toilets are situated at three locations along the beach, along with carparks.
