Rest Bay is situated on the south coast of Wales in Porthcawl. It's a sandy beach with a rocky surrounding and can be a little tricky at high tide. There are some great lefts and rights at various spots on the beach and is best on the incoming tide. The waves can be quite hollow which is ideal for short boards and was proven by the international surfers who were surfing the welsh open the day the pictures below were taken. There is easy parking and access to the beach but you need to keep an eye on where you are and how quick the tide comes in here.

Rest bay has got it's own surf cam courtesy of the Double overhead surf shop from where you can get a live feed of what the surf is looking like.
