Membership of the Greener Camping Club is compulsory at this site. Dunes at Whitesands Camping spacious hideaway and meadow camping, just a short walk from the amazing Whitesands Beach. Relax away from the busy crowds on your own private pitch, our pitches are huge and allow you to experience your own piece of wild Pembrokeshire countryside. The site is in a perfect location for strolls to the beach or the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and less than a 5 min drive to the beautiful Cathedral City of St.David's. There are distant sea views from parts of the site, amazing night skies and the sound of the crashing waves are all part of the Dunes experience, along with modern clean facilities and peaceful chilled evenings by the campfire. In order to comply with countryside planning policy, we operate as a Greener Camping Club members-only campsite. The Club was established by people with a passion for sustainable, eco-friendly camping holidays. When you book your holiday with us, you must join the Club. Membership costs just £12 for the calendar year and gives you access to some of the greenest campsites in the UK. It also includes participation in the Club's 'Trees for Life' scheme, whereby a tree is planted for every member we enrol. During there high season (May Bank Holiday week and the months of July and August) we only take week bookings, Saturday to Saturday. For all other dates we have a 2 night minimum stay.

Buzzard Camping or Camper Van Pitch (EHU)
Tranquil camping in beautiful spot
A beautiful and peaceful site in a gorgeous location. The facilities are fantastic, very clean. Each plot has a fire pit and picnic bench which were great. Fran & Richard are brilliant hosts too. The location of the site is great, a short walk to the beach and very easy access to St David's and surrounding areas.

Blackbird Electric Meadow Pitch - Tents Only
Very well thought out site!
Amazing place. Stunning views. The facilities are top notch, a very rare find! So many little details considered to make a very comfortable camping experience. Pitches are generously sized and private.

Raven Meadow Pitch - Tents Only
Highly recommended campsite!
Amazing campsite. Facilities are all fantastic, and the amount of space you get on the pitches surpasses any other campsite I've stayed at. Short walk to Whitesands beach (either 5-10 mins on the road, or 10-15mins taking the slightly longer coastal path). We have young kids and it wasn't possible to walk into St David's with them, but only a 5 minute drive. The hosts were super helpful and kept everything spotless. We'll be back!

Guillemot Hideaway (EHU) Tent or Camper Van
We loved this campsite. We had one of the hideaway pitches and there was loads of room and the greenery provided good privacy.The campsite was full but it didn’t feel crowded as everyone is so spread out. The facilities were great too. We wish there were more sites around like this.

Nearby attractions

Blue flag and surfer friendly Whitesands Beach is just a 10-minute walk away, skirting around St Davids City Golf Course (07527 004015) to get there. You can take boards from the campsite and throw yourselves into the waves or simply enjoy a little sand castle building. Its 1½ miles into St Davids itself. Famed for being Britain’s smallest ‘city’, it is really little more than a village. But it’s one of the most characterful villages in the country and very much characterised by its celtic heritage, most obviously in the Welsh language, which you’ll probably hear being spoken in shops and bars hereabouts. Visit the cathedral (01437 720202), the bishop's palace(01443 336 000) and explore the many galleries – Oriel-Y-Felin (01437 720 386) is a particular favourite – or stick to the coast with a ramble along the renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Food and drink

The beach café offers a wide range of hot and cold food and is just a 10 minute stroll away. For everything else, St Davids is the place to go. It boasts many good Welsh pubs, including the Farmers Arms (01437 721666) and The Bishops (01437 720422) – both of which offer traditional pub fare. There are a handful of good restaurants in St Davids too, including The St Davids Gin & Kitchen (01437 720404). Slightly further afield The Shed (01348 831518) in Porthgain offers the best seafood.
