North Shore Beach

Sun and swim on North Wales' beaches

A staycation wouldn’t be complete without a day out at rest or play on one of North Wales’ hundreds of miles of brilliant, sandy coastline. With 110 official beaches, there is no shortage of things to do when visiting during your static caravan holiday.


Whether your activity level on the sand is reading a book and soaking in the rays or out in the water with the sea life, there is something special for you to do during your caravan holiday. Surfing, wind sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking and kite sailing are just a few of the ways to make a huge splash on the water! If smaller waves are more your style, then enjoy the array of cafes, boutiques and markets.

Little beach combers will love the donkey rides at certain beaches, such as the popular North Shore or at Colwyn Bay. Bring a spade and pail, some sunscreen and have a blast any time you want a day out in the beautiful North Wales summer.

Visit Wales' Ancient Castles

Wales once about 600 castles, of which over 100 are still standing tall, either as ruins or as restored buildings. North Wales is home to many of these ancient grounds and is known for having more castles per square mile than any other.

Back when castles were being built a thousand years ago, the mountains and valleys provided a great landscape for construction due to the great water supply from both the rivers and the sea. Now we can go on a fantastic caravan holiday to those seas and see the remnants of those legendary castles for ourselves. Edward I, the King of England from 1272 to 1307, built the Big Four castles in North Wales: Conwy, Harlech, Caernarfon, and Beaumaris. These castles were among the largest and most sophisticated castles ever built. These remain four of the most actively visited castles in the country today.
