The beach at Fontygary Bay is wide and mostly made up of pebbles, backed by cliffs, giving a striking backdrop to this beach, which is popular for swimming in the summer months. At this time of year there is a lifeguard service. Behind the cliffs are mostly fields, as well as a caravan park and a number of other facilities such as a cafe and toilets. Parking can be found a short walk from the beach along Fontygary Road. The nearest village from the beach is Rhoose, just a few hundred meters away. It has further facilities such as shops, places to stay, and a train station with regular services to Cardiff within walking distance of the beach.
