The only campsite next to Whitesands Beach. A spectacular beach side setting and ideal camping location.
Whitesands is one of the best surfing beaches in the country. Wet suits and boards for hire, and surf lessons in the summer.
Overlooked by the imposing craggy hill of Garn Llidi, this wide expanse of fine white sand curves north towards the remote rocky headland of St Davids Head.
This is one of the best surfing beaches in the country and therefore very popular. The surf ‘break’ is at the northern end and on busy days there are canoeists, surfers and body boarders competing for the best waves. At this end, there’s also a rocky promontory to climb on. At the quieter south end, there are some nicely sheltered bays.
Dog restrictions apply to the entire length of the beach between 1st May and 30th September.
