Newton Bay beach also known as Black Rock beach to the east of Porthcawl is a long sandy and rocky beach, backed by the very large Newton Burrows and Merthyr Mawr sand dunes, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The beach stretches from Newton Point to the mouth of the River Ogmore at Ogmore-by-Sea.

Newton Beach is popular with walkers, horse riders, windsurfers, kitesurfers, jet skiers and power boat users. People looking for a family beach tend to look towards one of the other Porthcawl bays.
