Visited on a hot May evening (Sunday night), was really busy and lots of places to eat and drink. It felt like we were abroad! We visited Weatherspoon’s, The Dock and Iguanas. We didn’t walk far around the bay though it was nice to look...More

My first visit to Cardiff Bay, and very impressed. Amazing idea to wall off the sea and create a huge lagoon, with lock access to the sea, but it worked. Excellent 6 mile walk all round the bay, well worth doing.

The weather was great and there was a fantastic vibrant feel across the bay. Boat tours, great food places and awesome views would definitely recommend it to anyone and can see us returning.

Pretty area with a lot of restaurants. Plenty to do and plenty of options to eat at, didn't spend much time there because we were more interested in walking the bay and seeing the historic buildings.
