Porthcawl & Rest Bay

Rest Bay near PorthcawlWith its three separate bays (Sandy Bay, Trecco Bay and the picturesque Rest Bay), Porthcawl offers miles of unspoiled sand. The area includes an amusement park, a seafront theatre, parks and more attractions of interest and family packed fun.

Rest Bay is a firm golden sandy beach backed by low cliffs and The Royal Porthcawl Golf Course. It faces south west and receives the full force of the Atlantic swells, which produces excellent surf.

Lifeguards cover both beaches at weekends form May to September 10am to 6pm; Daily July and August 10.30am to 6pm. First aid is also available. Bathers should be aware that there is large surf at the beach and that cross currents form at some stages of the tide. Swim between the red and yellow flags.
