Up the other end of Porthcawl away from the holiday makers is the more interesting part of this Welsh seaside town. Purpose built in 1995 and near the harbour is Porthcawl lifeboat House. The station operates an inshore B class Atlantic 85 lifeboat and a D class inshore boat. At the end of Porthcawl breakwater stands a small lighthouse which was built in 1860. The lighthouse is currently in use as a navigational aid for the harbour.
