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 Heritage Coast Centre and its team of knowledgeable rangers are based here. The visitor centre is open daily.  The beach is popular with surfers.

The bay is a great place for walking. If you fancy a full day out, why not download the Ogmore by Sea Walk which links two great beaches. Alternatively choose one (or all three!) of the Three Dunraven Walks to explore all this stunning area has to offer. If you just fancy an amble, or need something to do when the tide is in, you can visit the walled gardens and the Dunraven Castle ruins and take in the breathtaking views across to Temple Bay. (Look out for the waterfalls cascading from the cliff tops!).
