Tariff & Terms

Tariff and Terms for Whitesands Beach Camp Site

Due to the impact of the wet weather, and the need to re-seed the grass, the site will not open in 2018 until Whitsun weekend, Friday 18th May. 

Small site (30 tents) is normally open from Easter school holidays through to end of October.  Farm fields open in August: basic "farm/wild camping" but more room.

Adults (13 years+) £6 per person per night;  5 years+ £3 per night;  under 5s foc;  dogs foc.  No peak season increases.

"First-come-first-served policy".  We do not formally take bookings and cannot allocate pitches in advance. 

If the small main site is full (apart from August), there are nearby tent sites inland, that have greater capacity and no booking requirements.

Sorry, we don't have pitches for caravans or very large campervans.

There are 14 electric hook-ups on the main site ("first-come-first-served").  It is not possible to book hook-ups in advance.  When available, these are charged at £3 per night.

Electric showers are £1 for a token, obtained from Famous Pete.

We do not allow campfires (on the ground), and Chinese lanterns may not be lit or launched on site.

In the interests of other campers, dogs should be kept under close control or on a lead on the site.

To avoid damage to the grass-cutting machinery and environment: campers are requested not to remove stones from the hedges, or leave them on the fields.

There is no set time for arrival: "Famous Pete" works in the Beach Car Park Ticket Office, and may be contacted there between 0900-1700; if you arrive outside those hours, choose your own pitch, and visit him the next day.

The small main site is fairly flat, and the sloping fields above the beach (open in August) all have flat areas mainly next to the hedges, but if you camp on a sloping section it would be wise to park your vehicle across rather than facing downhill.

10% discount given for groups of 20 or more.  Please e-mail your requirements for larger parties. 

Groups of under-18s are accepted if contact details of "a responsible adult" are provided by e-mail, and payment for the camping visit is made in advance, on arrival.

We do not take credit cards.

10% discount given by Ma Simes Surf Hut (on site in August).

Broadband Wi-Fi available on site (charge made for use by provider Dragon Wifi, first 10 minutes free). 

 

Camping Next to the Beach

Surely it doesn’t get much better than this!

Pitch up alongside 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

The facilities provided are basic: showers (two with tokens), an outdoor shower, toilets, 14 electric hook-ups, and water taps dotted about the place.

There’s plenty of room in the fields 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 shop, situated in the beach Car Park, is open for most of the year.

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park imposes a dog ban on Whitesands Beach between 1st May and 30th September.
