A newly built shower block was opened in August 2020: showers (five with tokens), an outdoor shower, 6 toilets (male, female and disabled/family). The site has 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 July and August in 2021: 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.
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.
