Ogmore Central Beach

Popular west facing beach of mixed sand and pebbles, two miles long, at mouth of the river Ogmore. Suffers very badly from litter and refuse, but still popular with families, surfers and canoeists. The beach has a surf club and toilets but no other immediate facilities apart from an omni-present ice cream van. Great local pubs half mile up river by Ogmore Castle.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
