Wales Coast Awards - Blue Flag 2024

Trecco Bay Beach is situated next to Sandy Bay (known locally as Coney Beach) and is a few minutes’ walk away from Trecco Bay Holiday Park and its wide range of facilities.

The beach itself is a large, sandy beach which has been awarded a Blue Flag for its excellent water quality; this makes it great for families looking to indulge in some paddling or swimming. Trecco Bay Beach is the second most easterly of those that make up Porthcawl’s ‘7 Bays’ stretching from Ogmore in the east to Sker Point in the west, making up around 10 miles of the Wales Coastal Path.

Whilst there are no on-beach facilities, Trecco Bay Holiday Park offers a variety of refreshments and entertaining diversions such as amusement arcades, mini golf and the Splashland swimming pool. The complex also houses public toilets and a small car park to the rear for those driving to the area.

Trecco Bay beach sits in between the long, sweeping Newton Beach to the east and Sandy Bay to the west. From Newton, there is a great walk across to Ogmore-by-Sea and the dunes at Merthyr Mawr. Sandy Bay is great for families with clean water for paddling and swimming during the summer months.

Dogs are welcome to exercise on Trecco Bay beach during off-season from October 1st to April 30th.
