Rest Bay

Rest Bay beach watersports centre in Porthcawl, Bridgend

A surfer’s sanctuary, Rest Bay is a brilliant Blue Flag beach in Porthcawl.

Rest Bay faces south-west, so the ocean swells produce a fine surf for board riders. This beach offers wannabe surfers the ideal opportunity – with instructors and surf board hire available.

But if you’re after something a little less energetic, the firm, golden sands that sweep up to a rocky shoreline backed by acres of common land offers the perfect place to relax. A European Blue Flag beach, Rest Bay has also made it onto the Marine Conservation Society’s Good Beach Guide.
