Top 5 Pembrokeshire Beaches: Top 5 Best Pembrokeshire Beaches - Walk Wild (mattwalkwild.com) - "With its jutting cliffs, azure water, and golden beaches, Whitesands is like no beach I’ve ever seen. It’s located on St David’s Head, set against the backdrop of the 181m Carn Llidi, in a part of the coast that is so far removed from anywhere that it’s hard to believe you’re still in the UK."

Camping Next to the Beach

Surely it doesn’t get much better than this!

Pitch up next to Whitesands Beach: choose the best waves from the comfort of your tent; go for a swim when the tide is just right; explore the rock pools below you; and experience the magic of a Whitesands sunset.

Facilities

A newly built shower block built was opened in August 2020: showers (five with tokens), an outdoor shower, 6 toilets (male, female and disabled/family), 14 electric hook-ups, and water taps dotted about the place.  For most of the season this is sufficient, though it can get busy in August.

The farm fields are open in August: there’s plenty of room in the fields (13 acres) for a game of football or cricket; at the Beach Car Park you can book surf lessons and hire equipment, including windbreaks and recliners.  For a 'live' view of Whitesands click on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MjvSFTXyV0

The “Coaster” bus travels to St David’s every half hour during the summer months (May to September); and the beach is manned by RNLI Lifeguards over the same period.

A cafe, situated in the beach Car Park, is open for the camping season.

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park imposes a dog ban on Whitesands Beach between 1st May and 30th September.  There is no ban on the coast path, or the nearby beaches of Porthsele or Porth Melgan.
