Why Rest Bay?

Rest Bay is up there with the most popular surfing beaches in the UK.

It's one of the most consistent surf spots all year round, and quite often the beach of choice for surfers traveling from Cardiff, Newport, Bristol, Reading and London.

Local Knowledge

At low tide the beach is large and wide, and you've got a big area to choose from. But at high tide the beach disappears and the surf will be up on the rocks, so beginners should be wary of this.

Heading straight down the slipway and into the water offers a safe environment that keeps you away from the rocks found on the left and right hand side of the slipway.

Be careful of the "Rest Bay Bus". This is a notorious rip current located on the East side of the beach by the rocks (left hand side as you look out to sea), well known for carrying unsuspecting surfers out to sea!

Through the summer months Rest Bay has lifeguards on watch so stay in their flagged area if you're not sure, but be mindful of swimmers and other water users.

If you have any questions when you're here, pop in to Porthcawl Surf Shop or Porthcawl Surf School and our staff will try their best to answer them.
