  • Jacksons Bay beach is a secluded bay, backed by cliffs with one end being formed by the breakwater at the entrance to Barry Docks. Often overlooked by most people who stay on the larger beaches next door.

    Take the concrete footpath running from the east end of Whitmore Bay along the cliff top and you will eventually come to Jackson’s Bay. Beware in stormy weather or high tide as the path descends to the foot of the cliffs to reach the beach.
