I think everyone in the UK has been to Barry Island at one time in their life. It's great for walking off a hangover.

The dogs enjoy Barry Island too

This is mine and my parents dog enjoying the beach. Even though they aren't allowed on the main beach during the summer, they can go on some of the others.

A useless piece of info

Barry has the second largest tidal range in the world, so there are large expanses of sand when the tide is out

Pros and Cons

    Nice souvenirs of Barry and Welsh people. I staid there in the summer of 1960 for a stage in a chemical plant (at Sully or Penarth ?). It seems it got crowded since then. Airport, several golf clubs; only the pebbles have not changed.
