With thousands of miles of stunning coastline around mainland England and Wales, there are many awesome beaches to visit around the coast. You could say we are spoilt for choice. So, take me to the beach!
In our opinion, the best way to see these beaches is to travel by campervan, and our fabulous Freespirit campervan conversions are perfect for your adventure! (You could walk, but if you walked 10 miles a day, it would take 3 years!).
But, where to go?
We have done a little research, and here are some recommendations on where to take your campervan on a little (or big adventure) to visit some spectacular beaches around the coast.
So, pack up your campervan and take yourself on an awesome road trip. See how many beaches in the UK you can visit.
We promise you won’t be disappointed.

Beaches for campervans.
Along the UK coast, there are so many beautiful beaches, all with their own unique charm, many in areas of outstanding natural beauty and an abundance of pretty seaside towns to visit along the way.
What are you waiting for?
West Wittering, West Sussex
Firstly, West Wittering Beach in West Sussex is just down the road from our base in Chichester.
What a beauty. Vast stretches of sand. Beautiful sunsets.
The beach here is very popular so it is advisable to book parking in advance. Book parking at West Wittering
You can even stay overnight at a nearby campsite, Chichester Camping and Caravan Club Site, so you can enjoy both the sunset and the sunrise.
Camber Sands, East Sussex
Camber Sands in East Sussex is unique along this part of the south coast in that it has sand and sand dunes, unlike most of its pebbly neighbours!
It is a popular kitesurfing and windsurfing spot for those of you seeking a thrill.
As it is a vast sandy beach, bring those buckets and spades and start building that epic sand castle. This applies to all ages!
With so many stunning spots in the South West of England, there are so many wonderful beaches to visit in a campervan.
There is something for everyone, from surf beaches to hidden pretty coves, as well as quirky seaside towns.
Situated on the north Cornwall coast, Perranporth is the perfect spot to visit with your campervan. Sand, surf and a pub literally right on the beach!
You can park your campervan right next to the beach, very handy if you like to surf or kayak. Or if you prefer to take it easy, there are almost 2 miles of sand at low tide to stroll along and explore the rock pools. and if you have a dog with you, it’s a dog-friendly beach for them to have fun too.
Brean Sands, Somerset
Brean Sands on the Somerset coast boasts what is said to be the second-largest stretch of sand in Europe. It also has designated parking right on the beach, perfect for rocking up in your campervan, putting the kettle on or cracking open a beer and watching the different types of sea birds that also like to visit the beach.
New Quay, Wales
Wales has some beautiful sandy beaches, which are quieter than the well-tread paths in south-west England.
Stay overnight and explore the area. Find out more information here about camping in the area.
On the south coast of Glamorgan, Rhossili Bay, is known as one of the best beaches in Wales and indeed the UK. In an area of outstanding natural beauty, protected by The National Trust, there are 3 miles of sandy beach and a shipwreck, and you may even be lucky enough to spot some seals.
