Wales campervan hire 

Welsh Coast Route 

Grab your camera and Welsh phrasebook - we're taking a road trip around the scenic Welsh Coast! Get ready for sandy beaches, dizzyingly tall mountain peaks and gorgeous, picturesque views. 
 
The route starts out in Llandudno in North Wales and takes you down to Swansea before a quick stopover in Shropshire to close out the journey. In between you'll see a bustling university town at Aberystwyth, an old-fashioned but still popular beach in Barmouth, and plenty of lesser-known hidden gems too. Often the best places to visit are the ones you stumble upon completely by accident – so don’t be afraid to go out and explore! 
 
All our recommended campsites offer campervan pitches, and are dog friendly too, so your furry friend can join in on the fun too. And remember that we are always available, no matter where you are in the world! 
 
 
 

1st Stop - Llandudno 

Plas Farm Caravan Park 74.2 miles, 1 hr 23 min 

Kicking off your Welsh Coast adventure is a stop in Llandudno, a coastal town with one of North Wales' best pebble beaches. The town is most famous for its old-school Punch and Judy shows and its incredible cable car rides.  
 
Take lots of photos of the architecture - between the Victorian promenade and the pier, you're spoilt for choice - and stop by the arcade for a few games of PacMan. If you have little ones with you, don't forget to make time for a donkey ride on the beach! 
 
Uncovered in 1987, Great Ormes Mines is one of the best archaeological discoveries in recent years. Not much is known about the 4000-year-old place even today - what will you discover? 
 
The Alice in Wonderland Trail will let you see Llandudno through new eyes. Can you find all the characters? Make sure you wear good walking shoes and take water with you, as you'll be going up lots of hills! 
 
Or go seal spotting at Angel Bay! It tends to be nice and quiet here, so park up, embark on the steep walk to the cove, and see how many seals you can find. If it's a nice warm day, they might even be sunbathing on the sand.

2nd Stop - Anglesey 

Ysgubor Fadog 36.3 miles, 54 min 

It's time for some island fun! The Isle of Anglesey has some of the most stunning surroundings in Wales. - even just going for a quick walk down to the shops will grant you picturesque views. You can find a lot to do here, from hiking and water sport to eating at restaurants and exploring the historic streets. 
 
Here you can visit the last Welsh stronghold created by Edward I. The famed Beaumaris Castle is perhaps best known as the castle that was never built. It's not entirely true - large parts of the castle were completely, namely the masterpiece of engineering that is the fortress - but poor planning and a lack of manpower left it unfinished and unable to live up to its dreams.  
 
Anglesey Sea Zoo is a unique aquarium with over 40 tanks of marine life, focused on the conservation of the ocean and educating people about it. Buy tickets from their website, then enjoy an afternoon spent exploring the aquarium, the gift shop, and the cafe! 
 
No matter what time of year you visit, the gardens at Plas Newydd House are beautiful to walk through. With year-round events too, there's no excuse to leave it off your itinerary! 
 
If the dog friendly beach, abundance of pine trees, excellent facilities and numerous trails doesn't convince you to visit Newborough Forest, then we don't know what will! The Anglesey nature reserve was first established in 1955 and has entertained thousands of visitors since then.

3rd stop - Aberdaron 

Bryn Llan Caravan and Camping 47.6 miles, 1 hr 19 min 

Aberdaron was once known as a fishing village, but in recent years has become a place to go on holiday and enjoy the sun. During your visit, you can go kayaking in the sea, walk on the sandy beaches, and hike up hills. If you like, take a ferry to Bardsey Island and go birdspotting!

Description 
Bryn Llan Leisure is small, quiet, and back-to-basics. On a clear day It is located a few miles away from a secluded sandy beach called Whistling Sands, which earned its namesake from the sound the sand makes when walked upon! There's plenty to do out and about near the campsite, but if you want to stay in the kids will love a kick about on the fenced-in football pitch. 
 
Families will have a blast at Glasfryn Park! Well behaved dogs are more than welcome in North Wales' premier indoor activity centre, provided they stay on leads as there are grazing sheep roaming around. 
 
Another beautiful dog-friendly place to visit is Pwllheli Beach, which is a mix of sand and pebbles. The beach is more suited for walking than sunbathing, as it can get blustery here and the weather often feels colder than it is! 
 
You won't be able to traverse the entierty of Llyn Coastal Path - it's 84 miles long, after all! - but spending an aftenoon exploring the coves and secrets hidden along the path sounds like bliss to us. Keep an eye on the ocean as you walk along the clifftops, as there's every chance you'll spot a seal or dolphin!

Make sure to buy some fish and chips to eat on the sand - there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the ocean, even if its really busy!  
 
It's time for the main event - Barmouth Beach! A true vintage seaside experience awaits you here, and you get the oppotunity to eat candy floss, sunbathe on the sands, and let the kids enjoy a donkey ride. In peak season the beach has lots of visitors, so if you want a more private hangout take the land train to venture a bit further down.  
 
You can spend an entire day at Cadair Idris and not get bored. With several hiking routes for all abilities, cafes and restuarants, and sporting events, you'll never run out of things to see. 
 
Barmouth Bridge is one of the defining silhouettes of this town. On a clear day, you can see the horizon stretching before you, travelling further than you could imagine. Don't forget to pay the troll toll before crossing! 
 
And if the main beach is completely packed, you always have the choice to make the short drive down to Fairbourne Beach. It's less well known, so it tends to be quieter, but that doesn't make the beach any less impressive to visit. Grab an ice cream, lie back on the sand, and enjoy.

The site is conveniently located too, only a short walk away from Clarach Bay and a five-minute drive from Aberystwyth! 
 
Famed for its bluebells, Penglais Nature Park is a woodland escape from the hustle and bustle of the busy day-to-day, even if you aren't visiting in spring. So if you'd like a relaxing few hours in nature, pack a picnic lunch and get yourselves to Penglais.  
 
If you're looking for unique walks, consider a trip to Pen Dinas, the oldest Iron Age fort in Ceredigion. Discover the ancient history while enjoying the fresh air and lovely view. 
 
Depending on what time you visit, Borth Beach can be two completely different places. At high tide, it's a pretty pebble beach with rocks of all shapes and sizes. But at low tide, it transforms into a gorgeous three mile stretch of golden sand, perfect for long walks!

The town is also surrounded by incredible hills and mountains - the views from the summit is phenomenal! 
 
Dolphins regularly visit the shores of New Quay. Take a boat trip to see them up close and personal! 
 
It's a lengthy walk from New Quay, but its worth the hike to see the peaceful waves at Cei Bach Beach. This hidden gem is often less crowded than the more touristy areas and it has tons of space - perfect for walking the dog or having a quiet day out.  
 
Another must-visit location is New Quay Harbour Beach. Along the harbour is a row of shops, arcades and cafes. Make sure you walk along the harbour during both high and low tide as it appears very different!

Visit Traeth Gwyn Beach at low tide to reap the full benefits of this long, sandy beach.
