Rest Bay, Porthcawl By Brent Davies


As spring comes to an end, our lovely beaches are slowly beginning to look like holiday destinations again. The sand at Porthcawl is gleaming with the sunny weather we've been having, with Trecco Bay and Sker Beach offering ideal conditions for relaxation, while Coney Beach and Rest Bay are the best bet for full-on seaside entertainment.
This week both Rest and Trecco Bay won the Seaside Award for wonderfully clean and green seasides, plus we've also managed to keep our Blue Flag awards for both beaches, making it the 13th year in a row! We are so lucky to have these lovely beaches and every visitor, local or not, should take the opportunity to surf, swim or just relax here.
We're making an album of your best Bridgend County beach pictures and your favourite one will be posted on our header for the month of July. Send your photos to BridgendBites@gmail.com. We can't wait to see which ones you've been to!
