Watch House Bay Beach

Watch House Bay beach is a quiet sandy beach looking over to the old harbour on Barry Island. Watch House Bay is on the other side of Cold Knap Point and the busier larger Knap beach.

When the tide is out you have a massive expanse of sand in front of you and can make it over to Little Island.

It is often easier to use the facilities over on the main Knap beach but you do have a small amount of parking.

We have no current information on dog restrictions for Watch House Bay Beach.
