Coastal Campsites for Sea Kayaking


There is great sea paddling to be had all around the UK’s coastline and some top UK campsites to match. We’ve selected three areas below to help get you started …


Sea Kayaking in Norfolk

An often over-looked gem the Norfolk coastline is simply stunning. The beaches, bays and estuaries of Norfolk can offer the sea kayaker some great experiences. With miles and miles of wide sandy beaches, unspoilt Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and some of the best nature reserves in the country, it’s easy to see why the Norfolk coast will appeal to the nature loving sea kayaker.

Kayaking in Dorset

The Dorset coastline boasts the famous Jurassic Coast and as you’d expect it’s very beautiful. Experienced sea kayakers can challenge themselves against the area’s hefty tides, and those with less adventure can simply enjoy a relaxing jaunt among the rocks.
