Dunraven Bay (Southerndown)
Much loved by the locals and attracting many visitors every year, although officially called Dunraven Bay, it is also often referred to as Southerndown beach taking its name from the nearby village.
This beach is a great place to fossil hunt and has some of the best rock pools along the coast. It has a great sandy beach, large car park and visitor facilities.
The Glamorgan Heritage Coast Centre and its team of rangers is located at Dunraven Bay. Groups are welcome by appointment only.
Dunraven Gardens are situated just up from the beach and are a wonderful place to visit.
