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.
