About Dunes at Whitesands Camping
Families, couples, walkers, small motorhomes, caravans, camper vans – yes. Dogs – no. The camping site is vehicle-free during the week. Cars can only access the camping pitches twice; once to pitch and once to strike camp. The only exception to this is the camper van / motorhome pitches (Chough, Kite, Buzzard, Hawk and Guillemot).
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 & 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.
