‪Enjoyed the whole experience.‬
יולי 2021
‪Absolutely beautiful. Especially if you're a tourist hoping to get good photos of a beach. I went alone and for the most part, i felt completely safe. There are pockets of people and people alone just hoping to enjoy the sun during low tide.
There is a bus from Bridgend Station that goes directly to the Bay. You just have to walk down a path to get there. This is a bonus for anyone who doesn't drive on the right side or drive all together. Go early because you'll get maybe 3-5 hours before the tides completely come in.

Its perfect for those who also love rockpooling.
You can also trek the cliffs to go to the castle and go some sightseeing from a higher view point.‬

‪Went to the bay not knowing much ,other than Dr. Who was filmed here. Turned out to be one of the best beaches I've ever been to. Amazing rock pools and rock formations. We parked in the small top car park and walked down to the bay. Glad we did as we would have missed the amazing view of the rocks from above. Definitely worth a visit...just make sure it's at low tide or you will miss out on the super clean sand.‬

‪Beautiful bay and not too busy. Somewhat close to Devon but without the crowds. A real gem. Lots of space to walk and play. I would love to return.‬

‪Have been visiting this beach since a child as a local of Bridgend. It used to be a tranquil, quiet place but not any more. The place really busy and the litter bins overflowing. There is a no dogs rule in the Spring and Summer but witnessed countless dogs on beach and dog poo as well left by inconsiderate dog owners. Many had portable bbqs on the beach and litter left. What was a tranquil local spot is now not the same. Added to this an excessive £5 charge by private landlords for parking. We stayed as always till early evening and witnessed cars irresponsibly parked on the hill going down to the beach on double yellow lines. So sad to see this happening in a beautiful, much loved local spot.‬

‪Lovely beach‬
יולי 2021
‪The beach is lovely. I went swimming it was really nice. The car park nearest for the beach is quite small and it was very busy. There is higher up car park but its a little far to walk.‬

‪Wonderful beach trip marred by unhelpful parking attendant.‬

‪Wonderful beach trip marred by rude and unhelpful parking attendant.
We live locally and attend Southerndown / Dunraven Bay regularly. We have been three times this week already and know you can pay for parking by card. On arrival this morning, just as charging (£5) starts, we asked to pay by card. The attendant retrieved the machine and found it hard not charged over night. I did not have any cash on me (partially from a COVID perspective but generally don’t carry it unless I’m going into an unknown place) and the nearest cash machine is several miles away. I asked if we could park and pay as soon as the machine is charged, being that we were there at 9am and among the first thirty or so cars to arrive (and the first asking for card payment). We got a flat no followed by, 800 people paid yesterday we’d have to do it for everyone (yesterday was Sunday and much busier than today’s Monday). Passive aggressiveness not required.

Having a toddler in the car with beach tent etc. to carry alone, down a hill from the nearest council car park (which has a pay and display machine, take not Dunraven Estate) wasn’t ideal and their rudeness and inflexibility was a shame. It has marred the beach generally, one I have visited throughout my life with family and go several times a week. We’ll spend more time in Ogmore.‬

‪We were supposed to have a quick stop here... We stayed all day! £5 for parking as long as you want, and the coastal walks are absolutely beautiful! It's my new favourite place in the world. Can easy spend a whole day with the castle, coastal walks and beach! Absolutely amazing‬

זוגות • ספט׳ 2020
‪Visited here on the weekend as myself and my boyfriend were visiting family who live within walking distance (lucky things!). We’ve been before but it was really beautiful on Saturday.
Car park was open, it costs £5 but you can stay as long as you like and it goes towards the maintenance. Little shop was open too, we had an ice cream and a coffee.
Definitely worth a visit. ‬
