Barry Island is a locale, promontory and coastline resort, framing some portion of the town of Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales. It is named after the sixth century Saint Baruc. Barry's extend of drift, on the Bristol Channel, has the world's second most noteworthy tidal scope of 15 meters 49 ft,second just to Bay of Fundy in Eastern Canada.
The promontory was an island until the point that the 1880s when it was connected to the terrain as the town of Barry extended. This was somewhat because of the opening of Barry Docks by the Barry Railway Company. Set up by David Davies, the docks now connect up the hole which used to disconnect Barry Island.
