Barry has much to offer with views of the Bristol Channel, and close to the rural Vale of Glamorgan.
Close enough to Cardiff to enjoy the city, but far enough away from the hussle and bussle!
Barry Island has a large sandy beach named Whitmore Bay which is blue flag accredited. The beach is accessible for buggies and wheelchair users and has ... a large promenade.
Whitmore Bay was also the location for many scenes shot in the popular BBC series 'Gavin and Stacey'. Barry island also has a pleasure park which is open from Easter to September and has over 50 rides aimed at children of all ages and various amusement stalls.
Entry to the park is free but there is a charge for rides, with discounted family tickets available for purchase. Along Barry Island Sea Front there are various cafes and places to eat as well as public toilets with baby changing facilities.
