Nant-y-Big, a family-run camping and caravan site for over 80 years, is the only campsite that is positioned by beautiful Porth Ceiriad beach near Abersoch on the Lleyn Peninsula. It has the luxury of three separate camping areas: safe, family-only pitches with electric hookups near to the facilities, a 15 minute walk down to the beach; a low-density camping area with panoramic views of the beach and Cardigan Bay; a third area set in the valley just above Porth Ceiriad beach itself. These last two camping areas require a short walk of between 50-250 metres - depending on choice of pitch - to more basic facilities.
Out of peak season, the campsite is a haven for wildlife, especially birdlife, the tranquil, southern-facing setting making for one of the most relaxing camping experiences anywhere, weather permitting. Nature-lovers will enjoy the quiet beauty of coastal walks or seaside fishing, flora and fauna or just escaping the daily grind.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
