Home » Campsites by the Sea
Sand between your toes, crystal blue waters and the delicious aroma of fish and chips, is there anything better than a trip to the seaside?
There are many reasons why campervans make the ultimate beachside companion. After working up an appetite paddling in the sea you can come back and cook your favourite meal. Campers with outdoor showers are perfect for washing off sandy feet, paws and wetsuits. They are also a great place to store larger water sports equipment such as surfboards and paddleboards.
So slap on the waterproof sunscreen, pack your favourite cozzie and let’s dive into the 10 best UK campsites by the sea.
