Wales Coast Awards - Seaside Award 2024

A wide pebble beach (some sand is revealed at low tide) with coastal walks nearby, located around a mile from the main resort beach at Barry. Always quieter, although it still gets busy in the summer. Facilities are good here.

It is a popular sea fishing beach, and you will see the anglers with their rods along the seafront.

Parking available along the seafront. Toilets.
