"Poorcawl!!" Porthcawl by Chad2410

Porthcawl Travel Guide: 82 reviews and 281 photos

We came here for a daytrip from birmingham , all the B&B's were fully booked but there was no people anywhere (bearing in mind this is mid summer)where was everyone??? ended up staying in the Pier Hotel in a room conveniently situated above a speaker or something. decided to take a walk to Coney beach to see if anything was happening there , that place is stuck in 1973. It needs levelling!!!.. Porthcawl also has a non existent town centre, the signs point to a town centre but we couldnt seem to find one. ended up in a curry house on the night (desperate yes...) but the only choice we had apart from 2 dodgy looking pubs and a few hotels which we didnt really want to go in as the clientelle were a little on the old side.. so after a dodgy curry we ended up in the room ,smoking our way through copius amounts of marijuana to numb the sound of the spaeaker below us, watched big brother (far more entertaining than this town) got up at 10am and got the funk out of there.

    Obviously you are not a fan of beaches and nature, then. I admit it's not the liveliest of places [not in April anyway] but the views are brilliant.
