Whitmore Bay
Whitmore Bay
The sweep of sand at Whitmore Bay is the basis for Barry Island's attraction as a seaside destination. The building on the headland had been a Butlin's holiday camp but by the time this photograph was taken in 1987, it had been sold to Majestic Holidays. This incarnation does not seem to have been very successful and the complex was closed in 1996 and demolished a few years later.
