As Storm Evert hit Wales yesterday many beaches suffered pollution from sewer overspills meaning the water was not safe to swim or surf in, according to the organisation Surfers Against Sewage (SAS).

It has since issued warnings on its website and app, advising holidaymakers and locals against going into the sea at certain beaches.

The warning comes after flooding and up to 48mph winds blasted Wales, particularly on the south coast. You can read more about Storm Evert here

The beaches affected are currently on the south and west coast of Wales. This information is correct at the time of publication, however, warnings and advice may have changed since.

This Gower beach, which is popular with surfers and tourists, has had storm discharge from a sewer overflow in the past 48 hours, according to SAS.

This wide sandy beach holds Blue Flag and Seaside Awards awards as well providing facilities with toilets and showers and a café.

The west side of the bay has been particularly affected by the pollution and there is also Langland Pumping Station which can discharge when overflowing.

Caswell Bay

This Gower beach that is loved by families is also experiencing storm sewage from an overflow in the past 48 hours, says SAS.

Caswell Bay has plenty of facilities from shops and a cafe to toilets and wheelchair access making it perfect for families and holidaymakers.

There are no sewage treatment outfalls at Caswell, with the closest being Bishopston Sewage Treatment Works that discharges at the next bay over, Brandy Cove.

Swansea Bay

SAS says it's best to stay out of the water at Swansea Bay as storm sewage has been discharged from a sewer overflow in the past 48 hours.

The waterfront city beach stretches from Mumbles Head to the River Tawe. You can hire bikes or simply walk along the bay while enjoying the sea and city views.

Swansea Bay can have pollution risks as many sewers overflow discharge into the sea here alongside those that discharge into the River Tawe, according to SAS.

Wisemans Bridge

Moving further west now into Pembrokeshire lots of beaches have been polluted due to recent stormy weather, according to SAS.

Wisemans Bridge is a smaller beach measuring 500m with a mix of sand and rocks. There are fewer facilities at Wisemans Bridge with just toilets and a popular pub.

Currently, storm sewage is said to have been discharged from a sewer overflow in the past 48 hours, which has happened here before after heavy rainfall.

Saundersfoot Beach
Saundersfoot Beach has also been hit by storm pollution

Just up the coast from Wisemans Bridge is Saundersfoot Beach, a popular holiday destination that is being affected by pollution after a storm sewer overflow.

This wide and sandy beach is loved by families and won a Blue Flag Beach award this year. There are lots of facilities at Saundersfoot with a choice of cafes and pubs as well toilets and wheelchair access.

Saundersfoot beach can sometimes suffer from nearby sewer overflows after heavy rain, it is said.

Tenby South Beach

Another popular holiday beach in Pembrokeshire that has been affected is the Tenby South Beach, which has seen pollution from sewer overflow after the storm, says SAS.

This glorious stretch of sand and sea has a café, toilets, and a bar and restaurant, and Tenby North Beach is currently unaffected by the pollution.

While within the Tenby area there are a few sewage outfalls, this is biologically treated with ultraviolet light to help protect and conserve the water, says SAS.

Tenby Castle Beach

The smallest of Tenby's three beaches, SAS says Tenby Castle Beach has also suffered from storm sewer discharge due to sewer overflow in the past 48 hours.

Nestled quaintly around the corner from Tenby South Beach, Tenby Castle Beach can disappear at high tide and there is a range of facilities here, including a museum.

Lydstep Beach

This pebble and sand beach is great for sea fishing, swimming, and watersports however it is advised you hold off going into the sea here as there has been storm sewer overflow in the past 48 hours, says SAS

The beach backs onto the popular Haven Lydstep Beach Holiday Park and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs along the beach, providing great views of Caldey Island.

Lydstep avoids direct sewage overspills as there are none nearby, however, with a number of big rivers and an urban catchment area there can sometimes be a risk of pollution, according to the organisation.

Manorbier Beach
Manorbier beach in Tenby has sewage overflow discharges in the past 48 hours

Very popular with surfers due to its south-westerly location this is a beach you might want to avoid taking your board to this weekend, says SAS.

The beach is part of the Pembrokeshire National Park and offers a cafe and toilets, with a stream running down to the sea at the northern end of the beach.

Manorbier beach currently has had sewer overflow discharges from the storm for the past 48 hours as well as the sewer overflow discharge at the south end of the beach, adds the SAS website.

Barafundle Bay

This award-winning beach that has often been compared to the Caribbean is currently experiencing storm sewage from a sewer overflow, it is claimed.

With no facilities close by, it is the perfect getaway from everything and has stunning sand dunes to enjoy and explore. In non-stormy times there is no known pollution to affect this beach

Freshwater East Beach

This wide beach known for its golden sands and sand dunes has had sewage from storms discharged in the last 48 hours, says SAS.

It has been awarded a Green Coast Award this year and there are toilets at the beach. Other than the storm sewage there is no other pollution warning in place for this beach.

Newport North Beach

Further north in Pembrokeshire, Newport North Beach also has an SAS warning not to go in the sea as there is a likelihood of reduced water quality.

This wide and sandy beach is enjoyed by bird watchers due to the local estuary and families are also fans.

Recently a new sewage treatment works discharges into the sea, roughly 700m away from the beach.
