Visit Sker Beach
Sker Beach is a lovely long flat sandy stretch of beach and one of quieter spots around Porthcawl. The beach runs from Sker Point, near Pink Stone Bay all the way to the mouth of the River Kenfig (Afon Cynffig in Welsh), marking the border of Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend county.
To get to this beach you can walk from nearby Rest Bay or through the Kenfig National Nature Reserve. There two carparks at the reserve. Then, it is a 25 minute walk through the dunes to the beach.
With so much space, it is never crowded. Surfers come here and even some naturists. It’s a great place to spend time, either reaxing on the beach of hidden in the dunes. At low tide, about halfway down the beach, the Wreck of the MV Altmark, the remains of a timber boat, becomes visible.
This beach is dog friendly all year round.
