Farm Fields: (13 acres, or nearly 10 football pitches) above the beach; plenty of space.  This 'wild camping' is restricted to tents, trailer tents and vehicles with driveaway awnings; the pitches are set far apart.  Of course, the facilities on the main site (showers and toilets) are also available to campers using the farm fields.  There will be no additional charge for those who bring their own toilet tents to remain self contained.

There are electric hook-ups on the main site.  It is not possible to book hook-ups in advance.

Electric Shower Tokens are £1.  Campers must not use coins, they shut down the meters.

We do not allow campfires on the ground which damages the grass (the campsite is part of a working farm).  Respect the Farm.

In the interests of other campers, dogs should be kept under close control or preferably on a lead.  They are not allowed in the shower and toilet block.

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

The main 30 pitch site slopes gently down towards the sea.  The farm fields are open July and August 2021: the higher up you go in the fields, the flatter your pitch will be, and more dramatic the view.  Park next to your pitch.

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 immediately on arrival at the office.

We accept contactless and card payments (preferred) or cash.

Broadband Wi-Fi available on site - charges made by Home | Dragon WiFi 

Mobile Phone - reception on the campsite next to the beach is weak, it improves with a walk to the top fields or a short distance up the hill on the St Davids road.

Facilities

A brand new shower block 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.

Farm fields are open in July and August 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.

An ice cream hut and a cafe are open for the camping season.

We accept dogs and well behaved owners on site.  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.
