Top campsites by the beach
Now, you’re properly wondering exactly where the best campsites by the beach can be found. Thankfully, our huge range of Canvas Holidays coastal campsites make the most of some of the world’s most glorious beaches in addition to being packed with exciting amenities to suit all the family.
If you’re fond of beach holidays in Spain, take advantage of campsites like Castell D’Aro on the Costa Brava that’s surrounded by an impressive list of facilities, from a tree top adventure park to a water activity centre.

If a French beach holiday with plenty of opportunities for outdoor pursuits sounds like a better match, head to Camping du Golf that’s set on the wild Normandy coast.
Things to do when camping by the beach
The combination of camping and holidaying right next to the ocean has to be one of the most relaxing getaway ideas ever. While the usual activities of sunbathing, swimming and general relaxation are a given on a beach holiday, you’ll also find that there’s so much more to our range of coastal campsites.
Spend the morning on the beach, pop ‘home’ for lunch, then settle down for an evening BBQ outside your tent or mobile home accompanied by a bottle of good local wine. If you need a break from the sun, you’ll find all of our Canvas Holidays campsites are located within driving distance of some of Europe’s most iconic cities and towns that each come packed with numerous cultural, historic and culinary delights.
And if you’re embarking on a family beach holiday, there’s no shortage of exhilarating activities and facilities on our campsites themselves that’ll appeal to both toddlers and teens. A handful are also positioned close to fun water and theme parks that make for an ideal family day out.
There’s something very special about holidaying by the sea; gorgeous golden sands, azure blue waters and the perfect playground for aquatic activities. Join us beach camping at one of our charming coastal destinations, where the sun shines and fantastic outdoor holiday memories are made. We have an extensive selection of campsites located directly on or close to blissful beaches in some of Europe’s most sought after destinations.
Discover the joys of feeling the sand between your toes, being lulled by the gentle lapping of the waves, cooling off with a swim and watching a stunning sunset over the horizon while staying on a beach holiday.
