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.
