The tidal coefficient today is 77, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 79 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 79. The tide heights today are 1.9 m, 9.0 m, 2.1 m and 9.2 m.

The solunar fishing calendar in Porthcawl tells us that today is an excellent day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is very high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 0:37 h to 2:37 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 5:18 h to 6:18 h, very high activity minor period (moonrise). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 12:53 h to 14:53 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 20:29 h to 21:29 h, very high activity minor period (moonset). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
Tide timetable for Porthcawl. The times are generated in local time in Wales and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Porthcawl are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in meters referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
