Ogmore-by-Sea Near Bridgend CF32 0QP

The pretty coastal town of Ogmore-by-Sea is sweetly sandwiched between Bridgend and Llantwit Major, and boasts one of the most impressive beaches in this part of Wales. Stretching out for what seems like forever, Ogmore Beach is the locals' choice for dog walking, surfing and just hanging out – plus it's right on the Glamorgan Coastal Path so is a great spot for walkers too.  If you fancy a day out, try walking to Ogmore beach from the Merthyr Mawr sand dunes, passing by the Ogmore Castle ruins– a fantastic spot for a picnic.
