Porthcawl is accessible from Junction 37 of the M4. There are large long stay car parks at Hillsborough Place for the town centre and Rest Bay for the water sports events. The two sites are linked either by a 1.3 mile walk along the Wales Coastal Path or a quick ride on the free bus that runs throughout the day.
Porthcawl offers a range of places to stay if you are keen to see the whole day and watch the night surf, or want to enjoy some of the rest of the attractions on the Heritage Coast for Sunday. The Bridgend Bites site is the best place to start for accommodation.
