From the banks of the Nevern estuary, up the slopes of Carniginli Mountain, down wooded valleys and out to Newport Beach sand dunes, these walks offer a variety of beautiful scenery and natural habitats.
Newport itself has a Norman Castle, some interesting 18th and 19th century houses, and two beaches – Newport Sands and Newport Parrog – separated by the river Nyfer.
Newport Sands is a well-known windsurfing beach, but the Parrog, although more sheltered than Newport Sands, is a muddier beach with some dangerous currents.
From the 16th to the early 20th century Newport was an important trading and shipbuilding centre and the Parrog formerly had several warehouses (one survives as the Boat Club).
There are a range of walking opportunities available in and around Newport and these are listed below three headings, Half Day + Walks for those who want to take on a more challenging and lengthy route, short walks for those who want a stroll and Easy access walks for those with mobility problems, including routes suitable for wheelchair users, as well as parents with pushchairs and buggies.
