“Great walk and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is a lovely walk from the Bay to Penarth with wonderful views of the Bay and Marina. Well thought out as a play ground for the kids, toilet facilities and places to stop and just admire the view. Of course there are several restaurants on the Bay side and Pier 64, and the Custom House House with its two restaurants on the Penarth side. You can also take a boat trip either way.

“Nice Evening Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This place is very nice for walks or cycling.
this is the place where the Cardiff bay meets the sea.

IF you are lucky you can see the barrage getting opened for the ships to come and go ..

“An interesting feat of engineering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Well worth a visit as part of a walk around the Cardiff Bay area. Interesting to see boats entering the Bay from the Bristol Channel through the lock gates.
