Walk - Rest Bay to Kenfig Nature Reserve

Uncover the coastal beauty of Bridgend’s beaches on the 3-mile walk between Rest Bay and Kenfig Nature Reserve passing shipwrecks, rare orchids, and some of northern Europe’s highest sand dunes. Starting from Rest Bay’s car park, head West on the Wales Coast Path past the greens of Royal Porthcawl Golf Club to enjoy the fantastic views across Swansea Bay. At the rugged headland of Sker Point, sharp eyes might be able to spot the remains of the 1947 shipwreck which inspired R.D Blackmore’s novel The Maid of Sker. Continue onwards to past the natural haven of Kenfig Sands, adored for its incredibly rare colourful orchids, insect population and some of Europe’s largest sand dunes.
