Porthcawl is a town on the south coast of Wales in the county borough of Bridgend 25 miles west of Cardiff and 19 miles south-east of Swansea. It developed as a coal port during the 19th century, but its trade was soon taken over by more rapidly developing ports such as Barry. It is now a holiday resort and is home to a large static caravan park known as Trecco Bay.
It has an extensive Promenade and several beaches two of which are ?Blue Flag beaches? a tourist-oriented beach at Trecco Bay, at the east end of the town and a sandy beach at Rest Bay to the northwest of the town. The quiet and sandy Pink Bay leading out towards Sker point, where a tarmac covered car park serves a sandy beach.
