Kenfig National Nature Reserve (Bridgend)

Kenfig pool and dunes are designated as an SSSI and Kenfig is also designated as a SAC.  The dunes are home to many important wildflowers and rare invertebrates.  Kenfig Pool is the largest lake in south Wales and is important for birds.  There are 22 species of dragonfly with at least 17 breeding.   The site is jointly managed by Bridgend County Borough Council and NRW.

Kenfig NNR is between Bridgend and Port Talbot.  To get to the reserve, exit the M4 at J37 and follow signs (brown duck) from North Cornelly, Pyle and Porthcawl.  There is a free car park and the reserve has a small visitor centre.  There are several walks with a boardwalk (which is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs) leading to hides overlooking Kenfig Pool.
