Like barbecues, volleyball and campfires, camping is generally more fun when you're by a beach. There's only one thing that can better it – beachside glamping – where you don't need to worry about filling your car with tent pegs and sleeping bags. Sure, they've managed to snag an incredible location, close to all the things we love about the beach – beachfront cafés, seafood restaurants, seaside shops and water sports – but the more isolated beach glamping spots in the UK offer something slightly different as well, namely wild and rugged beauty and a true sense of being in the outdoors. So whatever kind of luxury camping experience you're looking for – tipi holiday, a bell tent overlooking the sea or a retro seaside caravan – our guide to the best UK coastal glamping sites will have something to suit you.
