Top 10 UK Surf Campsites


Waking up next to the surf is a life affirming experience. Here is a list of the top ten campsites across the UK where you can hear the sea and check the break from your tent, reviewed by Chairman of the board surf blog

Hillend Campsite – Welsh surfing mecca
Rhossili Bay is a 3 mile stretch of golden sand offering long rides in this California setting of grassy dunes. The campsite is chilled and hidden from the wind by the sand dunes. It’s a quiet 20 minute walk to the Kings Head pub and 30 minutes’ walk back. Llangennith, Wales SA3 1JD.

Celtic Campsite – Pembrokeshire’s surf paradise
This beautiful location is a few minutes’ walk from the beach, it’s the laidback vibe rather than the surf that’s magical. You’ll have to drive 10 minutes to Whitsands Bay if you want to find waves to ride. Pwll Caerog Farm, Berea, ST Davids, Pembrokeshire, SA62 6DG

The View – camping with an ocean view
Bigger and quieter than the neighbouring beaches of Newquay, Watergate Bay picks up just as much swell and has less crowded waves. The campsite is good for surfers with kids due to the leisure facilities. Short walk to the beach. Bostaran, Tregurrian, Newquay TR8 4AE

Perran Sands – get fit walking to the beach
This is a family campsite with a bracing trek to the golden sandy beach. It picks up most swells and depending on the conditions can be both a fun wave for beginners or a challenging beach break for the pros. Perranporth, Cornwall, TR6 0AQ

Higher Harlyn Park Campsite – Perfect for beginners
