whilst I was pleasantly surprised at how nice Barry Island itself is, there was an incident that made me concerned about how safe it is for elderly members of the public. Whilst walking to the car park I slipped and fell on the ramp down from the promenade at the far left side. This is because at the top of the ramp there are taps which people can use to wash sand off. As the ramp is covered in a layer of green algae, the water running from the taps causes it to be extremely slippery. Luckily when I fell I did not injure myself, but I would almost certainly have done if I had been an elderly person. The worst part, is that as I fell I heard someone say "oh not again", implying that I was not the first person to slip on this ramp. I don't see why the algae hasn't been pressure-washed off to make it safer and I hope this is addressed before someone else falls and really hurts themselves.
