Enjoy a fun day out for all the family at Barry Island
Barry Island Has attracted visitors since the 1870’s and the appeal of its golden beaches, cafes and family amusements is stronger than ever.
The refurbished seafront now offers a sweeping promenade along the entire length of the award winning Blue Flag beach Whitmore Bay, against a backdrop of enticing cafés and restaurants, vibrant beach huts and lots to amuse the kids with a climbing wall, mist feature, adventure golf and beautiful landscaped gardens. Or for the more adventurous, Barry Island Pleasure Park offers thrilling rides. And not forgetting the Gavin and Stacey TV connection.
The Wales Coast Path follows the route through the Island taking in not one but three beaches, two of which are dog friendly throughout the year, and passes by the National Coast Watch Centre with views across the Bristol Channel to the Somerset Coastline. Also worth a visit is the RNLI Visitor Centre, the Barry Tourist Railway and Barry War Museum.
Events are held throughout the year which draws the crowds, among which the Isle of Fire, Cinema by the Sea, Transport and Food festivals are now firm dates in the diary.
