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 recently refurbished seafront now offers a sweeping promenade along the entire length of Whitmore Bay beach, against a backdrop of enticing cafés and restaurants, beach wheelchairs available to loan, 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 connection.
