Happy to help


hire a rockpooling kit

Beach Academy gives visitors and locals to Rest Bay in Porthcawl the opportunity to hire professional equipment to self-learn and discover. 


For £5 a day you can hire a Rockpooling Kit to investigate Rockpools on your own. 

Kits include a white flat bottomed bucket, white flat-bottomed observation tray, fish and shrimp net, Rockpool I.D. guide and info sheets (to keep) showing you how to Rockpool and handle animals correctly.

Pop to our beach shop on the day at the Watersports Centre to pay and collect your kit.
