Merthyr Mawr Dunes provided the setting for parts of Lawrence of Arabia, they are one of the largest groups of sand dunes in Europe and their remarkableness will not disappoint you, they are fab for dune surfing!
Take a picnic and make a day of walking around the dunes and exploring the ruins of Candleston Castle and taking a small hike over the dunes to Ogmore beach (approx 20 minute walk).
The dunes are full of small wildlife and beautiful foliage and flowers…snails and butterflies are in abundance.
Location- Merthyr Mawr, Bridgend CF32 0PA car parking was £3 for the day.
It’s a lovely walk….
