The campsite at Troytown Farm on St. Agnes is practically on the beach (and the farm does wonderful homemade ice-cream too!), and the sites on St. Martins and Bryher are maybe 50-100m from the beaches. I don't think I've been to the Garrison campsite on St. Mary's, but the islands are all so small you're never far from a beach!

I'm sure some people do it, but in general don't think wild beach camping is really allowed - much of the land is either owned by the Duchy estates and/or is a wildlife reserve. Given the campsites themselves are all in brilliant locations and are fairly minimalist (they all have basic facilities/showers, but there's no bars/entertainment/etc. that you might find in much larger campsites on the mainland), it's not such a big difference anyway.

We stayed at the Garrison Campsite. Had all we needed. A bit of a trek up the hill with the camping gear but we could have paid for a Taxi. A short walk from the Mermaid.

When we've camped it's always been Brhyer... minimal but clean facilities (inc large communal Chest freezer to use for food...ice packs ect)very nice views location walks and ambience,cheap rates and if arranged,a Tractor and trailer to transport everyone's gear...too and fro campsite
5 mins walk to the Sea 3 mins to the Pub...."Fraggle Rock" some food there but not a huge menu.
Moorings by arrangement....and A tender of some kind a must ...although there is a long stone Peer for dropping off and picking up with the RIbs when needed.

Very interested in this one as well, really keen to get some sea miles under the keel after the troubles of the last couple of years!

Read that as fender at first, makes more sense the second time of reading

If you fancy a trial run, once weather/work/pandemics allow to trial camping and shore-run gear let me know
