Beaches 30 minutes from Cardiff

There are so many beaches only 30 minutes from Cardiff. I have taken some artistic licence, your travel time will depend on which side of the city you are travelling from, and of course the time of day you are driving. It may also take longer on public transport. If you are coming from North Cardiff it will be quicker to go west to areas such as Bridgend and Porthcawl. And from East of the city, it will be quicker to get to Penarth, Barry and Llantwit Major.

From the sandy beach at Rest Bay in Porthcawl, you can walk or cycle along the Coastal Path
