Dunes at Whitesands Camping The Greener Camping Club

UK Wales South Wales Pembrokeshire

Dunes at Whitesands, Craig-Y-Mor, Whitesands Bay, St Davids, Pembrokeshire, SA626PT

Body-boards to borrow, campfires permitted and family-friendly facilities. This is old-fashioned seaside camping at its best.

On a sunny day, Whitesands fully justifies its reputation as one of the UK's finest beaches. Famed for its sunsets, when the fiery reflections only accentuate the golden colour of the sand, and renowned as one of the top surf spots in Pembrokeshire, it offers ample space for families and a convenient sliding scale of surfing difficulty – the experienced will find the best waves off the headland on the right of the beach, novices should stick to the left.

Set back from the sands and just beyond the sea-front golf course, ‘Dunes’, a relatively new campsite that opened back in 2017, is the ideal, low-key camping meadow for basing your Whitesands break. There are just 15 camping pitches on offer, hewn into heathery thicket and grasslands, each with its own picnic table and fire-pit. They’re all overlooked by the rare breed Balwen sheep that graze the adjacent meadow.

While the place has a thoroughly laid-back feel – and ‘rustic’ is the buzzword – new investment means a brand new facilities block will also be in place for the 2019 season, with proper flushing toilets, hot showers, a fridge and freezer space and charging points for mobile phones. Clever touches like the outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach, show great attention to detail, while the semi-wilderness of the meadow itself lends the campsite to parents who don’t mind their children getting grass stains on their knees and molten marshmallows stuck in their woolly jumpers.

If you’re not at the beach, it’s just over a mile to the smallest city in Britain, where you can explore the cathedral that gives St Davids its city status and duck in and out of the various cafés and galleries. Or, stay on the coast and hop from cove to cove and bay to bay, taking in the other Pembrokeshire pleasures – Druidstone Beach, Newgale Beach, Caerfai Bay, Little Haven, St Non’s Bay, Marloes Beah… the list goes on. And that’s before you’ve even considered a ferry out to the islands!
