Beaches, beaches...

If you would rather spend your time on some secluded beach or cove, then you'll love the fact that you are only ever minutes away from a beach in the Glamorgan Heritage Coast and Countryside. We have a varied choice of wild and wonderful beach life along our 28 miles of coastline, including a 14- mile stretch that was awarded Heritage Coast status in 1972.

If, like many of our other visitors, you know your swell from your wipe-out you can take your pick from beaches like Sker Bay, Pink Bay, Rest Bay and Southerndown that are a paradise for surfers from all over the world. The waves are great for both experts and beginners, who can get on board and learn the skills they need at one of the many local surf academies.

If you would rather look on from a distance, perhaps from the coastal path, then lace up your walking boots to discover spectacular cliffs and rock formations that overlook a number of secluded coves such as Tresilian Bay, which is perhaps the most romantic of all with its 'Bow of Destiny' cave, and Dunraven Bay.

Test your strength and endurance walking amongst the sand dunes at Merthyr Mawr, including one of the largest single dunes in Europe, known as 'The Big Dipper'! Why not take a sledge for an extra fun journey back down or accept the challenge of running up it as part of the annual Christmas Pudding Run!
