The south coast is one of the most popular, most beautiful and most diverse places to visit, from vibrant cities to beautiful beaches and coastlines now you can explore some of them with a campervan holiday when you hire one of our vintage VW campervans in 2022.

We are sharing some of the hotspots to visit in the south coast…


If you’re looking for a couple of days in the bright lights on the coast and a proper traditional seaside adventure, look no further than Brighton.

It’s vibrant, colourful and modern, with wonderful quirky shopping opportunities alongside independent restaurants and bars, and if you’re looking for upbeat nightlife, Brighton is one of the best places to have a night to remember. As if that wasn’t enough, the city offers fantastic seaside traditions, with a funfair to keep the kids entertained for hours on the iconic Brighton pier, and when you’ve worked up an appetite on the rides, you can enjoy some fantastic fish and chips.

Minack Theatre

If you’re looking for a unique place to visit on the south coast look no further than the Minack Theatre, the quirky landmark was built on private land by a rich family, and is still a working theatre that puts on performances regularly for spectators to enjoy with the bedazzling backdrop of the Cornish cliffs.

When there aren’t shows on you can still use the theatre to take in the beautiful and idyllic surroundings whilst enjoying a picnic or grabbing a coffee from the coffee shop close by.

St Ives

St Ives is a beautiful and popular jewel in Cornwall, a seaside town that offers everything you could want from a staycation, with beautiful beaches and many campsites to stay at after a long day of exploring or travelling in your campervan.

If you’re feeling like a beach day, Porth minster beach leads out to the South West Coast path, which leads you on a beautiful walk to the close by town of Carbis Bay.

Durdle Door & the Jurassic Coast

The Jurassic coast spans a breath-taking 96 miles of beautiful coastlines, which also features the iconic Durdle Door which is a high popular sun spot for beach lovers in the summer, with outstanding picturesque views.

Full of prehistoric fossils, rugged cliffs and coastal structures formed from millions of years of sea movement, the much loved coastline is said to offer a “walk through time” that spans around 185 million years of the Earth’s history.

White Cliffs of Dover

The White Cliffs of Dover are one of the most iconic landmarks in the UK, and a must visit when you’re exploring the south coast in your campervan, the landmark offers sixteen miles of trail that spans eight miles, giving you the opportunity to take in the stunning views and wildlife along a peaceful walk.
