“A bit ropey - exactly like Gavin & Stacey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had to visit whilst in Barry. There are lots of different machines with lots of change machines. It is quite dark and full of lights. It was a good afternoon to spend a couple of hours on the machines.

“Lovely beach, poor facilities”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We visited Barry Island for the first time. Coming from the Midlands we usually go to Weston which is only about an hour's drive Barry Island was an hour and a half so we thought we would try it. The beach was absolutely beautiful very clean,the only thing that lets you down was the toilet facilities which were portaloos and were absolutely disgusting! The shops and pleasure park were very dated.

All in all the beach was lovely but the area was very dated I think we'll just stick to Weston in future

Amusements are old, place is terrible no room. Barry island should be bulldozed and rebuilt!!!!!!! To a higher standard even the sea is brown with no hint of blue in it at all!!

“Touristy and tatty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Visited after seeing the Gavin & Stacey programmes on TV. Area seemed tired and run down. The shops sold cheap souvenirs and the cafes had greasy and not very appetizing food. The beach however adjacent was clean and inviting
