Whitmore Bay Beach

Whitmore Bay is huge sandy beach that lies between the two peninsulas of Friar’s Point and Nell’s Point. As the tide goes out you get more sand to play on.

Whitmore Bay is the main Barry Island beach and is between the smaller Jackson’s Bay around Nell’s Point and the Little Island or Old Harbour beach around Friar’s Point.

Whitmore Bay is the heart of Barry island and you have a wide selection of facilities on hand day and night: toilets, beach hut rental, cafes, restaurants, pubs, amusements and shops.

Whitmore Bay Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
