Kintra camping is probably as close to wild camping as you can get: you can camp in the dunes, right next to the beach. Our facilities are simple: hot and cold water, toilets, showers, washing-up facilities, access to laundry facilities, and an honesty library. But it’s the site itself that draws people again and again, not our mod-cons. The campsite is located among the grassy dunes, on a Site of Special Scientific Interest for Chough and Artic Tern. It covers a large area and rarely feels crowded. Light up a fire on the beach, wrap up warm, pour a little dram, and watch the waves.
In the height of the summer it is light til almost 11pm, and the sight of the Kintra sunset is unforgettable. Check out our Sunset-cam!
The beach is fantastic for children – and for grown ups. There’s great surf, and almost always a wind of some kind (good for wind sports, and good protection from midges!).
Please note we do not permit disposal of chemical effluent at Kintra – we have our own septic tank and cannot absorb this type of material. Our water supply is a private one which must be boiled before use (you will notice its distinctive brown colour – this is from the peaty soil in the area from which it is drawn). Our water source is very much finite (you can see our reservoir on the walk out beyond the gate to the hill land), so please use it carefully.
