The beach is back – Cardiff will once again create its own seafront with the return of the Capital FM Cardiff Bay Beach (Friday July 28 – Sunday September 3), to entertain families throughout the school holidays.

The urban beach, which has become such a hit in the Bay in recent years, is again expected to attract a quarter of a million people to the Cardiff waterfront, with a bucket full of traditional seaside attractions.

The beach features a giant child-friendly sandy beach, a shallow water play area, a variety of rides and games, a giant wheel with views across the bay, free live entertainment, great food and drink, and traditional deck chairs for visitors to chill out in the summer sun. Entry to the Cardiff Bay Beach is free, and there are chargeable facilities on site.

The beach is located in Roald Dahl Plass on the waterfront of Cardiff Bay, is open from 10am to 8pm Sunday – Thursday, and 10am to 10pm Friday and Saturday.

 Visitor Tip

Whist you are at the Beach why not visit Flat Holm, a unique Island just half a mile wide and 5 miles from Cardiff by boat. Rich in wildlife and steeped in history with amazing views across the Bristol Channel, the island has a sense of wilderness, remoteness and isolation.
