Short, hollow, left reef in front of Porthcawl esplanade. Popular with lids and air loving groms. Needs plenty of tide and cold N winds. Around the lighthouse is Coney Beach, a wide, flat, breakwall protected expanse of tourist sand for beginners, stand-ups and cruisers unless there's some storm swell and strong westerlies pushing up the channel. Last resort spot where the best rides are probably in the fun fair.

Park in town streets or car park and walk out to the Esplanade.
