Ogmore by Sea

Ogmore by Sea, originally uploaded by Tourism Bridgend.

With amazing views along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast and across the estuary to Merthyr Mawr and Porthcawl, Ogmore is a great place for a day out. Explore the caves and rock pools, but take care as the tides change suddenly, and this is no place for sea bathing or taking risks. En route to Ogmore by Sea is Ogmore Castle situated by the river and the Stepping Stones over to Merthyr Mawr. Take tea in the Tea-Rooms by the river, or spend some time at the ancient Pelican Inn overlooking the castle.

Ride on the beach.

Apparently there's only a few places in Wales where you can accompnay a trek and ride on the beach. Three Cliffs Bay is onme we know of and of course, in Ogmore by Sea, near Porthcawl. Both wonderful locations, especialy like the Ogmore ride along the estuary, through the dunes and onto Newton beach. Even takes in a castle too. Superb. Contact Ogmore Farm Riding Centre for details.
