Not just for sausage dogs, Ogmore by Sea
Despite hosting an attempt for the world's biggest sausage dog walk, Ogmore by Sea welcomes pups of all shapes and sizes throughout the winter months. Entertain your pooch for hours on end with a game of hide and seek in its expansive stretch of sandy dunes. If you and your pup have energy to spare, hop along the 52 stepping-stones leading up to Ogmore Castle, where dogs on leads can walk around the Norman stone-built castle on the lead. 

A rocky adventure at Newton Beach
Also known as Black Rock Beach, Newton Bay provides a rocky adventure for your dog to enjoy. With plenty of sand dunes and coves to explore, this rocky beach is filled with intriguing features for your furry friend to discover. If you are travelling from afar, the nearby Blue Seas Guesthouse welcomes dogs and even offers grooming and walking services. Its adjoining café is also dog friendly!

For the lone ranger, Sker beach
If a long and private walk in a remote spot is what you're after, Sker beach is the perfect location for you and your pooch at this time of year. One of the quieter beaches in Porthcawl, Sker beach is recommended for dogs who enjoy a beach to themselves. Wrap up warm and amble along the beach's grassy dunes or take your dog for a winter's dip in its chilly shallows.

Waterfall watch at Dunraven Bay
Often referred to as Southerndown beach, Dunraven welcomes dog walkers throughout the winter months. Walk along its soft sands and up onto low, grass-topped cliffs. Discover the ruins of Dunraven castle where you and your pooch can take in views across to Temple Bay and watch the occasional waterfall cascade down the cliff faces beyond.

Park up and go at Rest Bay
Surrounded by stretches of low, green grass-land and golden sands, Rest Bay is the perfect spot to take your dog off the lead during the winter months. If you're coming from far and wide, simply pull up with your pooch in the beach's nearby car park (just 100m from the beach) and go!
