The cliffs along this stretch of coastline are totally different to Pembrokeshire but no less impressive.
The next point of interest is Nash Point with it's two lighthouse towers. This was built in 1832 following public outcry after the passenger steamer Frolic was wrecked with heavy loss of life in 1830. Only one lighthouse is in use today. Large overfalls can form here but today it was flat calm.
Just before Tresilian Bay there is a large impressive cave which almost looks man made due to the layered rock formations. It is rumoured that the caves around this bay were once used by pirates. This one really took my breath away.
Passing Col-Huw point, the beach at Llantwit Major, the tide is now full in and all that is visible of the beach is a steep bank of pebbles. I paddle on to Stout Point where I have a short break. I then carry on around Summerhouse Point and the scenery changes for the worst as Aberthaw Power Station comes into view. The paddle along this stretch was a drag as the tide had changed and was flowing against me. I then paddled out to the concrete tower and into the main tidal stream to start on my return journey back to Dunraven Bay.
Before I know it I have reached the two towers of Nash Point lighthouse.
Soon my peace and tranquility is shattered. As I enter Dunraven Bay the beach is full of people, very different from the deserted one I left nearly six hours ago, anyone would think summer had come early.
