Heritage Coastal Path

14 miles of beauty

The Glamorgan Heritage Coast stretches for 14 miles, from Aberthaw to Porthcawl.


Plunging cliffs, tiny secluded coves and breathtaking views make the Heritage Coast a must for walkers, cyclists or anyone with a love of the countryside. The whole coastline is fringed with delightful towns, small villages and miles of footpaths and country lanes.


By far the best way to explore this remote and beautiful coastline is on foot. The Glamorgan Heritage Coast walk is a spectacular journey past dunes, cliffs and coves, rich in wildlife and history.

  • At Dunraven Bay, Southerndown, a sheltered sandy beach is backed by Dunraven Park's 56 acres of green hillside. Dunraven Bay is also home to the Glamorgan heritage Coast Centre where you can find out about the history, flora and fauna of the area.
  • Close by is Ogmore-By-Sea, another popular spot. This village, perched high on the headland, enjoys panoramic views over the estuary of the River Ogmore and as far south as the Devon coast.
