Glamorgan Heritage Coast
The Glamorgan Heritage Coast stretches for 14 miles, from Aberthaw to Porthcawl with plunging cliffs, secluded coves and breathtaking views it is 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 tidal range here is the second highest in the world after the Bay of Fundy in Canada, this, along with the dramatic blue lias cliffs creates stunning seascapes to rival any coastline in Britain!
All of this combined with wooded valleys, spectacular wildlife and 2000 years of human habitation, makes this coastline truly unique.
