Beach camping in Wales

Miles of stunning coastline and beaches make Wales the perfect destination for relaxing family holidays, from traditional seaside resorts of the north coast to the rugged cliffs and coves of Pembrokeshire and the Gower Peninsula in the south.

There are lots of activities to enjoy in the Welsh seas including surfing and coasteering, so take a look at our campsites by the sea and choose the perfect break for you:

Cardigan Bay

Cardigan bayOur Club Site at Cardigan Bay offers easy access to the coves and beaches of west Wales, a nature lovers paradise where you can see red kites and dolphins among other wildlife. The nearest beach is Newquay, three miles away, which is perfect for surfing and bathing. If secluded beaches are more your taste, Penybryn beach is 13 miles away and Mwnt beach 18 miles away. Mwnt beach is more off the beaten track so is often quieter, though steep steps leading to it makes it unsuitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. The beach is blue-flag rated and also ideal for fishing and swimming. Penybryn beach is one of the most unspoilt in the area, and thanks to its National Trust status is free of commercialisation. The mile-long beach is home to lots of sea and birdlife, with seals and dolphins being the highlight, but it is also a paradise for bird watchers.


llanystumdwyThe beautiful beaches of Criccieth are just 2 miles from the site; one pebble and one sandy. Both offer numerous activities including sea kayaking, sailing, fishing and rock pooling. A little further along the coast is Morfa Bychan beach, known as Black Rock Sands despite the rocks not being black. This is a wide sandy beach with a backdrop of sand dunes that have been named a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The beach is perfect for exploring the caverns and rock pools and is also popular with kite-buggies and kite surfers.


St David's
