This place has such a great atmosphere and is so close to everything, if you loved Gavin and Stacey you'll love it here as you can see the popular places where it filmed. Totally worth the trip from Cardiff.

Barry Island has a beautiful beach and the sea is a lot cleaner than it used to be years ago. This resort, like many others in the UK, is picking itself up after years of neglect when everyone headed abroad and ignored our lovely coastline....More

I've never used the beach huts, but I would assume the use of BBQs is a bad idea as many passerby and kids! Why not ask the people you are hiring from? HFB
