Attraction Information

If you love an outdoor seaside adventure, Penarth beach in South Wales is perfect for you. Though swimming is often not advised, there’s still plenty of fun to be had for little explorers. 

This sandy and pebbled beach is set in a popular location, and being close to town it means that an after beach ice cream is never too far away! If you’ve got mini explorers, go for a stroll along the beach, because you may stumble upon some fossils - they’ll make for a great keep-sake to remember your trip by. 


  • Sandy and pebbled beach 
  • Dogs banned 
  • Great for fossil hunting
