If you're a fan of seaside camping or camping near the beach then you can't go wrong with this gang of camping and glamping destinations that all have a beach just a short walk away.

Beach camping in the United Kingdom guide

Overview

Seaside Glamping

From clifftop cabins to bell tents by the beach, we've scoured the shores to find not only the best places to pitch your tent, but also incredible glamping hideaways for luxury lovers. Pack light, travel more easily and arrived to ready-made accommodation where you can put your feet up or enjoy a dip in the sea.

We go camping by the seaside because...

Walking on miles of open sand, swimming in the sea and building sandcastles is some of the most simple but amazing fun you can have! If you're planning on spending your holiday on the beach then why go camping inland? Instead, we love discovering campsites on the coast where you can step from your tent and wander down the sandy pathway right to the waterside. Swimming, surfing, paddling, splashing about... the waters of the UK are fun, safe and shark free! For families, camping by the coast is a no-brainer, while for couples and groups of friends the coastal footpaths, smugglers coves and old harbour towns offer ample exploring opportunities – and all topped off with local fish and chips for dinner. Delicious.

Holidays on the beach in the UK

We've got everything from clifftop campsites to pitches on the sand itself. So get your bucket and spade packed and head off for the beach, and make sure you come prepared for great British weather!
