Ogmore by Sea Description:
Ogmore by Sea offers several marks, the most well-known being the Estuary and The Deeps.
The Estuary is a mixture of clean sand and rocks.
The Deeps is fished from rock ledges into a very mixed bottom, occasional sand patches amongst rocky clefts. Great care is needed as there can be very dangerous swells, especially at high tides.
Fish include bass, mackerel, rays, whiting, codling, gurnard, garfish, mullet, plaice, dabs, flounders, conger, pouting, dogfish, turbot. The estuary may also hold salmon and sewin (sea trout) for which a licence is necessary.
Ogmore by Sea is signposted off the A48 as it by-passes Bridgend, initially on the A4265. At Ewenny, take the B4524 into Ogmore.
For the Estuary, parking is close by at the head of the beach.
For the Deeps, carry on straight through the village to a cattle grid at the far end. Go through the grid and park on the grass on the left hand side immediately past it. Walk straight down to the sea and turn left to the Deeps, which is a long shelf of flat rocks under the cliffs.
