Temperatures are expected to soar and the news has been saying that 2015 could bring the UK’s hottest ever spring and summer. So there isn’t a better place to be than the beach and Pitchup.com has rounded up some of the best beach sites in the UK and Europe for a great outdoor stay.

Golden Coast Holiday Village is located in Woolacombe, in the northern part of Devon and close to attractions including Watermouth Castle and Clovelly’s fourteenth-century quay. Two of the area’s highest-rated beaches are just over a mile from the site. The park offers a full range of facilities including four swimming pools, bowling, fishing, a sauna and solarium. In the evenings, guests can chill out and enjoy the valley views, grab a pint in the sports bar, or enjoy entertainment including game shows, family discos, tribute bands, comedians and illusionists. There is also plenty of fun for children on site: bungee trampoline, Wavesurfer artificial wave machine, ceramic painting café and many others. Pitchup.com offers a stay here from £12 per night on an all-weather pitch suitable for tents, tourers and motorhomes.

Celtic Camping in Pembrokeshire, Wales, is a lovely site right on the coastline meaning it enjoys amazing panoramic views across the Irish Sea and Abereiddy Bay. The site sits on a 250-acre working farm and is just a few minutes away from the pebbly cove of Aber Pwll and only 500 metres from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The campsite has excellent facilities and an indoor dining room for rainy days. Accommodation is offered in the form of grass pitches for tents, tourers and motorhomes and starts from £20 per night.   

Close to one of the famous Costa del Sol white sandy beaches, Camping Marbella Playa is an excellent choice for an outdoor getaway. Moreover, the campsite is just 15 minutes away from the resort town of Puerto Banus. With shallow waters and plenty of fish, the sea here is ideal for snorkelling, swimming, jetskiing and other watersports. Guests can enjoy a number of facilities on site including swimming and paddling pools, a solarium and a restaurant serving delicious food. The site is close to a number of theme parks and the region offers opportunities for zip wiring, karting, jeep safaris, canyoning and much more.

Explore the Vendée region of France while holidaying at Camping L’Albizia, a four-star campsite near Notre-Dame-de-Monts. Surrounded by a forest and just 900m from the beach, guests at the site can enjoy the Atlantic coast which offers many opportunities for watersports and bike rides. To complete your stay, the campsite has a host of facilities and activities: a heated pool, spa, aquagym, mini golf, wifi, themed entertainment, a snack bar and a restaurant. Pitchup.com offers accommodation here from just £63 per night staying in a fully-equipped two-bedroom holiday home.  Each one sleeps up to four people and has a kitchen, bathroom and TV.  

Camping Village Poljana is the ideal place to escape and spend a completely relaxing and stress-free holiday away from the UK. It is located on the island of Lošinj in unspoilt natural surroundings on the Adriatic coast and is literally right on the crystal clear waters of the sea. Guests can explore the beauty of the archipelago and admire wonderful views of the island by hiking, mountain biking or by taking advantage of the sailing trips.
