The current Covid-19 pandemic has enforced a period of pause for visitors to Barry Island. At a time where restrictions have been put in place to ensure the safety of all, we will use this time to reflect on the destination it has become. We aim to celebrate its key strengths and identify areas where improvements can be made to ensure that Barry Island remains strong in years to come.

The Rise of Barry Island

Barry Island has experienced unprecedented growth over the past decade. Alongside £millions of public investment into enhanced infrastructure revitalising the Eastern promenade, private businesses have focused on increased investment as they foresee the potential of the destination in the future. Visitor numbers increase year on year, and the popularity of the destination is at an all-time high following the record-breading broadcasting of Gavin & Stacey in Christmas Day.

What does the future hold?

With this in mind, we would like your input. How would you like to see Barry Island develop in the future? What improvements could be made? What facilities would you like to see on offer? Your feedback will help us develop Barry Island into a destination that visitors will want to visit, not just today, but in the future too.
When completing this questionnaire, please consider the improvements that would encourage you to keep returning to Barry Island in the future.

(For the purposes of this questionnaire, please set aside your perception during the Covid-19, answering the questions pre-lockdown phase)
