Review

“There’s a city, draped in net, fisherman net. And in the half light, it looks like every tower is covered in webs, moving and glistening and rocking.” K. Bush.

Step away from everyday life and immerse yourself in the beautiful, peaceful, Kenfig National Nature Reserve in Porthcawl, Bridgend. Set upon the edge of the mysterious, legendary Kenfig Pool - Glamorgan's largest lake; where it is believed a city lies beneath the water. One of Wales’ top sand-dunes reserves: Kenfig Nature Reserve is home to a whole range of endangered species of plants and animals, birds and insects, including the exquisite, fen orchid. The reserve is what remains of a huge, rolling dune system that once stretched from the Ogmore estuary to the Gower Peninsula, affording a great day-out for all, and is especially popular with birdwatchers, photographers, walkers and families. A designated Site of Special Scientific Importance, Kenfig Nature Reserve has gained worldwide attention for its success in nurturing rare species. Perfect for a day skimming stones with the kids, and taking the dog out; picnic tables and places to sit and eat provided - this beautiful place makes a great way of showing young ones how we can protect our planet, but in a fun and educational way. However, when you are skimming stones; don’t forget that what lies beneath, is still a mystery.
