Porthcawl is a tourist oriented seaside town with a fantastic coastline. With its three separate bays (Sandy Bay, Trecco Bay and the picturesque Rest Bay), Porthcawl offers miles of unspoiled sand. We are very lucky to have great surfing spots such as Rest Bay with its blue flag beach where you can hire surfing / body-boarding equipment and get lessons.
We have a handful of great golf courses within our vicinity not forgetting the prestigious Royal Porthcawl which is situated across our beautiful coastline.
Porthcawl has a funfair with games & rides, a small town centre with many independent stores and a harbour with lovely restaurants you can sit at and watch the world go by.
We are part of Wales Coastal Path. Wales Coast Path is a designated footpath which follows, or runs close to, the coastline of Wales. We are close to Bridgend with beautiful places to visit such as Southerndown beach, Ogmore castle, Margam park and Abbey and have close transport links to Cardiff and Swansea.
