Southerndown 2011

Coast of the Welsh Vale of Glamorgan.

The section of coast between Ogmore-by-Sea and Southerndown was covered in a previous gallery, ending with a tantalising view down the coast towards Nash Point. This gallery covers that final view, which is a lot more extensive than it first appeared.

This walk is along the tidal beaches between Southerndown and Monknash. It must be stressed that this walk can only be undertaken at low tide - the tidal range is extremely high, and the entire surface disappears quite rapidly under water when the tide comes in, with very few places to escape from it. If attempting to follow this route, make sure that there is enough time to complete the 3 km of beach before venturing onto it. There is a clifftop path instead if needed.
