    Hi guys, we're off to treco bay in porthcawl wales tomorrow morning for a week and wondered if anyone knows the area or has visited lately and could recommend things to do. We're into most alternative sports, like good food and something to entertain a 20 month old boy/ 11 Yr old girl. I don't know the area at all but have been told it's a good spot on the coast.

    Any pointers appreciated

    Cheers

    The trecco bay holiday park has all the entertainment under one roof. There's the swimming pool, Jungle Jim play area for the ickle uns, amusement arcade, ten pin bowling (not v big, but ok), entertainment in the evening, so there is quite a bit going on.... don't think there is much outside apart from the pleasure beach - but that is a bit cack imho.

    Don't bother with Barry Island it is not worth it at all. Treco Bay has plenty to do - plenty of beach. All you need is sun

    You could also go to Dan Yr Ogof Caves and see massive plastic dinosaurs. That's not near porthcawl but somewhere quite interesting for uked kids. My boy nearly pooped his pants when I took him 2 years ago I was secretly scared too but got to put on a brave face going into dark caves lol. Also, you could try the monkey sanctuary which is close by, I have threatened to take him there and leave him if he doesn't behave. But he's been pretty good and haven't had the chance lol. Well enjoy your rainy week, it's supposed to brighten up on Tues but that's all.
