Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes are part of a really large sand dune complex located by Porthcawl on the south coast of Wales.

The sand dunes at Merthyr Mawr are the second highest in Europe and shows off various stages of development from bare sand to areas of dune woodland and scrub. The area is managed by Natural Resources Wales (NRW), and it is designated as a SSSI because of it gives a great habitat for a large and varied range of wildlife and plants.

It’s popular for its wildlife and plants and famous as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ was filmed here. Kids love dune boarding here and it’s a wonderful day out with the family having a picnic and just enjoying the beach area and the dunes.

You have a large car park with toilets and throughout the dunes well-trodden paths. The nearby villages have a selection of shops, and pubs.
