Little Island Beach

The two main beaches on Barry Island are Whitmore Bay between the two peninsulas of Friar’s Point and Nell’s Point, and the other is the smaller and secluded Jackson’s Bay around the headland and cliffs, connected by Clement Coley Walk.

Little Island beach sits on the far side of Friar’s Point round near the old harbour, this is sometimes referred to old harbour beach. When the tide is out you have a massive expanse of sand and can make it over to the Knap. A good alternative is the two main Barry Island beaches of Whitmore Bay and Jackson’s Bay are busy.

Car parking is by the old harbour or a walk from Whitmore Bay on the other side of Friar’s Point. To get to other facilities you need to head to Whitmore Bay.
