St Donats Beach

Visit St Donats Beach

St Donats is a small rocky bay backed by a sea wall and the grounds of the 12th century St Donat’s Castle. The medieval castle is now home to Atlantic College with a church and areas licensed for wedding ceremonies, making it an ideal coastal wedding venue, just 40 minutes drive from central Cardiff.

Did you know? the American newspaper millionaire William Randolph Hearst owned the castle in the 20’s renovating it and hosting lavish parties with famous celebrity guests of the day.
