MERTHYR MAWR SAND DUNES & NEWTON BEACH WALK

SUNDAY 1st JULY

WALK DESCRIPTION: Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes are the second largest of its kind in Europe and a designated site of Special Scientific Interest due some nationally rare and unusual plants, insects, birds and fungii. This walk will lead us through this remarkable landscape of undulating grassy dunes near the mouth of the River Ogmore before reaching the long sand and rock beach known as Newton Bay or Black Rock Beach. From here, with sweeping views across the Bristol Channel, we'll head east along the stretch of beach and coastal path toward Newton near Porthcawl before returning via a slightly differing route.
