Starting from Rhoose Cardiff International Airport train station, this walk takes you along the coast with nice cliff-top views across the Bristol Channel.  There are also some wooded passages and a couple of parks for variation.  You'll finish up on Barry Island, where you can get some snack food or eat a picnic on the sandy beach before taking the train home.
