Bridgend is conveniently located mid way between Cardiff and Swansea, just a few kilometres from the south Wales coast. Boasting the Welsh Margate in Porthcawl, it offers all of the amenities of a traditional beach holiday, with the extensive urban services of Bridgend.A visit to Coney Beach would be incomplete without a stroll along the famous promenade, not to mention the amusement arcade, home to The Megablitz rollercoaster. For those seeking more of a different thrill, many of the beaches offer surfing, sailing, water-skiing and fishing.
