• Nottage & Sker Point Circular Walk

Twitter Facebook Pinterest


This Circular Walk starts from Rest Bay (Grid Reference SS80356 78275) and continues along the coast to Sker Point and through  the countryside around Nottage. The route is approximately 10 km (6 miles). The walk should take approximately 3:30 to 4 hours to complete but you should allow a bit more time to enjoy the views of the countryside. The route uses a combination of maintainable highway and public rights of way.

An alternative route has been provided in Nottage where the walk passes over two stone stiles. Work will also be carried out in the future to improve the surface of the path where the route passes the Royal Porthcawl Golf Club. This will make the walk fully accessible for less able people. Please  contact the Rights of Way Section for further information on these matters.

Remember to wear suitable clothes and good shoes/boots and take food and drink with you and be prepared to get fit!

Countryside Code

• Be safe- plan ahead and follow any signs
• Leave gates and property as you find them
• Protect plants and animals, and take your litter home
• Keep dogs under close control
• Consider other people

Always follow the Countryside Code. You will get the best out of the countryside and help to maintain it now and for the future. When you are walking on minor roads keep to the right and make use of verges whenever you can. It should be easy to follow the route using the guide. When walking the route try and look out for the Walk logo that will be situated on stiles, gates and posts along the route. Directional waymarks with arrows will assist you as to which direction to walk in once you are on a public right of way. We also recommend you refer to the OS Explorer Map 151 Cardiff & Bridgend.
