Sker Beach

As you know, I love walkies. It goes without saying. But I’m not fussy on the car trips you need to take to get to some of the more remote places I’ve been. But, as long as I have my blankie, my favourite cushion, some fresh drinking water and a big cwtch when I get there, I suppose I can cope.

Well, way back in July we had one hell of a great walkies!  In fact it was so good that I’ve decided to break the photos up into 3 posts.

We went to Sker beach, near Porthcawl.

Sker Beach is the most westerly beach in Porthcawl and is accessible only by walking from Rest Bay or Kenfig National Nature Reserve. Its remote location makes it one of the quieter beaches in Porthcawl. A plaque, in memory of the 47 lives lost on the S.S.Santampa, capsized and wrecked in heavy seas, and the Mumbles RNLI life boat which attempted rescue on 23 April 1947, is visible at low tide. At very low tides wreckage is still being found.

More on the beach later, but first, enjoy some photos…
