What a great beach, so worth a visit. I had heard of Barry Island when Butlins were there, and how awful it was, well, they have gone, and you can now have an old fashioned day at the seaside.

whilst I was pleasantly surprised at how nice Barry Island itself is, there was an incident that made me concerned about how safe it is for elderly members of the public. Whilst walking to the car park I slipped and fell on the ramp down from the promenade at the far left side. This is because at the top of... More

He enjoyed playing on a fireman machine, which involved holding a water gun and trying to put out the 'fires'. There were spinning teacups and fun water activities. We didn't stay too... More

We spent a couple of hours here on a sunny morning. Quaint and old fashioned seaside place, quiet and family friendly. The best bit for us was the golden sandy beach and glistening sea - the views over the water are stunning. Definitely worth visiting for a walk on the beach.
