Dazzling amusements and a retro pleasure park offer a fun-loving welcome to Barry, a traditional seaside getaway that boasts lovely golden sands.
As a Blue Flag winner, Whitmore Beach on Barry Island is renowned for its clean conditions making it perfect for sandcastles and simple seaside fun, and the panoramic ocean views here are spellbinding.
Tucked up against Barry’s pristine sands is a promenade where you’ll find colourful beach huts, beautifully landscaped gardens, vintage arcades, fish and chip shops and Marco’s Cafe – one of many locations in Barry that featured in comedy classic Gavin and Stacey.
If you’re a fan of the show, hop on board Dave’s Coaches and visit favourite sites, including Gwen and Stacey's home and Nessa’s caravan and arcade.
But you’ll discover there’s more to Barry than famous seaside sights. Beautiful Porthkerry Country Park sits on the town’s outskirts, a 220-acre expanse of woodland and meadows bursting with wildlife.
