Visitors and locals in Cardiff this weekend will get a taste of the seaside as the Cardiff Bay urban beach returns for a second year.

It follows the huge success of last summer's event when a quarter of a million people visited the attraction at Roald Dahl Plas.

The event will run until August 31st.

"Urban beaches are firmly established in major European cities such as Paris, Berlin and Madrid so it's great that residents and visitors to Cardiff have another good reason to cancel this year's holiday plans and soak up the sunshine in the heart of Cardiff Bay instead."

– Cllr Peter Bradbury, Cardiff Council
