Trecco Bay Beach

This well sheltered sandy and rocky beach is non commercialised and close enough for a stroll to the town centre of the popular seaside resort of Porthcawl.  The beach is part of a holiday park with access to the public, which has excellent facilities for all the family.  There is a restricted area to exercise your dog, as well as the promenade to enjoy a walk down.  There's even things to do when it rains, with an amusement arcade and leisure centre close by.  Plus the parking is free!

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.
