Wales Coast Path

Bridgend County is home to just 11.5 of the 870-mile Wales Coast Path but, boy, do we make the most of it!

That's 11.5 miles of dramatic dunes, award winning beaches, eyecatching castles and National Nature Reserves.

Glamorgan Heritage Coast

This dramatic coastline ,which lies between Porthcawl and Gileston Beach, gained Heritage Coast status in 1972 and offers soaring cliffs, golden beaches and romantic coves.

IN AN AFTERNOON:

Kenfig Visitor Centre to Porthcawl

4.5 miles / 7km

Kenfig National Nature Reserve is home to wild orchids, insects and other wildlife and is a great start to this enjoyable walk which takes in some of the best surfing and watersports beaches in Wales. On the way, you will pass near the historic and, some say, haunted Sker house, used as the basis of R D Blackmore's novel, The Maid of Sker.

Ogmore and Merthyr Mawr

5.5 miles / 9km

A circular walk starting at Bridgend railway station. Enjoy the thatched cottages and meadows of Merthyr Mawr villagebefore crossing the iconic stepping stones to the dramatic ruins of Ogmore Castle.
