Wales Coast Path

From quiet coves to the bustling beaches of Barry, this trail offers walkers the opportunity to experience the Vale of Glamorgan’s diverse coastline

Limpert Bay to Barry Island Walk: 7 miles / Porthkerry Circular Walk: 3.5 miles

It also takes in many of the Vale’s historic landmarks, such as the remains of the  Roman Villa near the Knap, and the more modern, albeit Victorian, railway viaduct  seen from Porthkerry Country Park.

Fans of the sitcom Gavin and Stacey will be thrilled that the walk ends at Barry Island. What better way to finish than to visit the slot machines where Nessa worked and enjoy a cup of tea or ice cream (depending on the weather) at Marco’s?

Am I dog friendly?
