Newton is the most easterly beach at Porthcawl and is a ten minute walk from the picturesque village of Newton. This beach is sandy and rocky and popular with windsurfers, jet skiers and power boat users. There is a slipway which is used by the local boat club. With miles of sand (although very rocky in parts), you can walk to the river mouth at Ogmore; it is next to Newton Burrows and Merthyr Mawr dunes.

Nearest facilities are at the Trecco Bay Holiday Complex which is a few minutes’ walk away. Limited car parking - no designated car park. Dogs are allowed.
