|Message||Always wanted to visit Porthcawl, so had a look at your site to get an idea of what it is like. Looked at the gallery to get a balanced view. Wow! Loads of pics of rocks, statues and buildings in the rain. The kids and the Missus have refused point blank to go there. Shame. I thought seaside resorts might have some pics of people enjoying the sun, playing on the beach, walking on the prom, etc. Not in Porthcawl apparently. Websites are supposed to ENCOURAGE visitors, aren't they?|

|Message||My partner and I have just returned from a short visit to Porthcawl and must say after viewing the pictures on this website, were expecting lots of rocky black beaches and crap statues.. luckily we had a far better "tour guide", and found there to be beautiful sandy beaches, such as newton and restbay, a lovely pedestrianised town center and also a scenic prom... |
dont go by these pictures on this website for gods sake.. or you would never go!!
|Message||Hello from an ex porthcawlian,been in SA for over 26 years now,last time back there over 5 yrs ago, still miss the place and all my friends and remaining family.Hope we do the business today at Cardiff I'm wearing my jersey all day come rain or shine !|
|Message||I am now in my fifties and have fond memories of Porthcawl as a child, when my own grandparents took me. It's a lovely place for children, but I feel saddened that the council seems to have done little to encourage visitors to the area. When I was at Coney Beach last weekend I could not believe how difficult it was for people with buggies and prams to get on to the beach. Every one had to be carried down steep steps. There is absolutely no chance of getting down there if you are in a wheelchair. A slope is not expensive to put in, so why hasn't it been done? Other local authorities have done so much to help the disabled - and it is now a legal obligation - so why not here?|

|Message||p.s - I absolutely Loved porthcawl whilst growing up. We went every year and I have many many fond memories of my time with my brothers and sisters and mum and dad hilidaying there. |
We met some amazing and hilarious characters over the years.
Please fix this place. Id love to go back at some point but I know I will be disappointed as all the fabric of the town has been ripped out.
Many many people love the town but decide to go elsewhere because of the bad upkeep.
If you are an owner of a business, How the hell can you allow this to happen?. They are physically stealing trade therefore money from your business. STAND UP TO IT

A couple of years ago I lived in Porthcawl for 6 months and worked in the excellent 'salthouse on the square' with Emma and Mal. Its by FAR the best place to eat and drink in the town. There really isnt anywhere else to go for decent quality food and drink in a civilized environment. Stuart in the kitchen is amazing.As for the town, ive visited it all my life but, was a little disappointed as the council dont look after it. it needs a real sprucing up and locals need to start realising that the tourist pound is what makes the town. clean it up
PLEASE!!!! Soo sad. It could be like towns in Devon or cornwall but the people and council just dont want to invest in the town. without investment and good people on a think tank board you will never re-capture what you had in the 80's and 90's.
Wake up and take notice or you'll be living in a worse shit hole very soon.
As for the beaches, there should be Litter police patrolling the beaches in High season that can give on the spot fines for dropping litter, cigarettes etc..
The company that now owns Trcco bay should also be investing in the upkeep and redevelopment of the town as they are raking it in. I know as my family have owned caravans in porthcawl for decades, and tey have told me the extortionate fees they have to pay now. Its disgrace. Stand up to these companies as a group and force a reaction. Nothing will change unless you work together.
