Wake up on a Welsh headland with bay, coast and cliff views, grab lunch of Minai mussels or (and) Snowdonia cheese at the campsite gastropub, then take your toes to sink into the sand of the site’s own private beach just a minute’s walk from reception…we heaved a wistful sigh just typing that. So we think a hol at St David’s Park at Red Wharf Bay on the Isle of Anglesey is a rollickingly safe bet for all things chilled, with the modern essentials you need on site and the attractions of Anglesey on your sandy doorstep.
But back to those views: the camping fields at St David’s Park are right on the headland, with views over the east Anglesey coast, the Red Wharf Estuary towards Victorian favourite Llandudno and the limestone headland of Great Orme – well, the whole area is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and designated nature reserve…And happily, the gastropub on site, The Tavern on the Bay, also overlooks the beach and bay for viewsome vittles.
For essentials other than the views and the pub, there’s a big modern shower block with underfloor heating and free use of all amenities including power showers, hairdryers, baby-changing facilities, disabled shower room and family bathroom with corner bath. There’s also a popular play area on site with cycling area and mini football pitch.
All pitches at St David’s Park are soft standing and come with electric hookup and aerial points, with water and waste disposal points easily accessible.

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.

From the A55 Expressway Westbound, take Junction 8, the exit for the A5025, signposted Benllech & Amlwch.
Follow this road for one mile, and go straight across the roundabout (Four Crosses pub on left).
Carry on passing the VW/Audi Garage on the right and go through the village of Pentraeth. Upon leaving the 40mph zone on the way out of the village, you will notice one of our signposts to your left just as you approach a sharp left-hand bend. You will then see a turning on your right signposted Red Wharf Bay. Turn right here and follow the road which runs parallel with the main road you have just turned off.
When you see the disused hotel ahead to your right go straight on, rather than following the road to your left. This leads you onto a country road. After approximately ¼ of a mile you will see the sign for St David’s Park and the Tavern 1924 on your left. Go through the gateposts and follow our private road to the end.
Start off on the doorstep with St David’s Park’s own safe and clean sandy stretch about a minute’s walk from reception: stretch yourself out on a beach towel in this sheltered bay or go a-rockpooling: there are several shallow pools suitable for kids to learn the art. There’s a boat park and slipway here too if you’re lucky enough to own your own craft; if not, try some fishing off the slipway instead and dream of the day you get your mitts on your very own vessel.
Also within very easy reach (you’re on an island, after all), there’s the massive beach and small village of Red Wharf Bay, with a sailing club, pubs and cockles to pick from the sand. Just along the coast there’s Benllech Bay, a Blue Flag award holder since 2004 and with tennis court and bowling green in the village, then Conwy Bay a little further to the east with old walled town and Conwy Castle.
The Victorian town of Llandudno, the biggest resort in Wales, is five miles from Conwy and has two beaches, a Grade II-listed pier and the Great Orme Tramway, the only cable-operated street tramway left in Britain. Catch a tram from Llandudno Victoria station to the top of Great Orme, where there are views as far as the Lake District and the Isle of Man on a clear day. Great Orme is a designated nature reserve and has thousands of clamouring seabirds to spot as well as a couple of hundred feral goats whose ancestors are said to have been introduced to Anglesey by Queen Victoria (follow your nose to find them).
Part of the North Wales Coast Path runs along the Great Orme summit and you probably wouldn’t mine a look at the famous Great Orme Mines either, which go back to the Bronze Age and are thought to be the biggest prehistoric mine unearthed so far in the world. Or spend a few days overground at Snowdonia National Park to tackle the summit of Snowdon, go horse-riding or take a trip on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. There are lashings of watersports at the park too, or you can stay on Anglesey and dive into exploring the shipwrecks of the shoreline instead – there are thought be around 1200 of them. The island has several diving schools for all levels of divers including lessons for beginners.
If you want to go further afield for a day trip, you can reach Dublin in a couple of hours via the fast ferry from Holyhead, just off Anglesey on Holy Island.
