With seven gorgeous beaches, Porthcawl is seaside paradise! The sands here are powdery, clean and varied. Some are lively and perfect for water sports, while others provide peace and seclusion. Throw in some vintage amusements, amazing scenery and a top-tier golf course and you have a destination that’ll please the whole family!
Adventure sports fans are spoiled for choice, with Rest Bay Beach a popular spot for surfers, kite surfers and windsurfers, and there are schools to help you master the fast waves that break on its golden sands.
And Porthcawl doesn’t disappoint for traditional entertainment, with glimmering arcades, a fun park and a host of classic seaside eateries. But it’s the Grand Pavilion that really takes centre stage, with its superb line-up of famous entertainers and afternoon tea dances. And the annual Elvis festival here is a real showstopper when over 30,000 impersonators flock to Porthcawl.
