Rest Bay Watersports Centre

The centre overlooks the beautiful, clean waters of Rest Bay, a blue flag beach, and Porthcawl is one of Britain’s fastest growing surf destinations. Perhaps that’s because it’s a convenient three hour trip from London. That makes it the closest, most consistent watersports destination to the UK capital, and it’s less than an hour from Cardiff.
