Thousands of people have flocked to the seaside and other parts of Wales this Bank Holiday Weekend to make the most of the sunny weather.
Today, Nell’s Point Car Park near Barry Island was full with visitor vehicles by 11am, with Harbour Road Car Park experiencing the same.
After what was the wettest May in Wales for 160 years, people took a trip to various Welsh tourist spots including Barry Island, Pen Y Fan, and the Brecon Beacons.
