MAP & LOCATION
It is worth noting a Sat Nav will get you here but via some very small country lanes….
THE MAIN SITE:
SURF COMP BEACH:
PEMBROKESHIRE COAST PATH
We are just four miles north of St Davids and easy to find, we recommend taking a left turn at St Davids Rugby Club and follow the road for 3 miles. You will find us on the left, by the sea.
If coming from the Fishguard area, follow signs towards St Davids, taking the second right in the village of ‘Croes Goch’. Continue on this road to a left fork at the bottom of the hill. From this direction, you will find us on your right….by the sea.
There are train services to Haverfordwest & Fishguard Stations from London, Cardiff and Swansea. Fishguard & Haverfordwest are well serviced by bus and taxi, to get you to site.
Celtic Camping & Bunkhouse are serviced by the local ‘Strumble Shuttle’ bus. They will stop at the top of our lane on its journey between St Davids & Fishguard, for reference we are in the little hamlet of Berea.
When travelling by HGV, Coach, or towing we recommend taking the main A40 road to the village of ‘Letterston” and then head west on the ‘St Davids Road’. This takes you to the to the village of Mathry. Take a left turn onto the A487, follow signs towards St Davids. In the village of ‘Croes Goch’ take the second right turn and follow this road taking a left fork at the bottom of the hill. Continue for another mile, from this direction you will find us on your right, by the sea.
Celtic camping is situated on the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal path, so enjoying a stunning walk to the site is no problem at all. Plan your journey well, and allow plenty of time to enjoy the scenery along the way.
For those that can easily get to Swansea by train, we have arranged a direct Bus, tickets for which can be bought on the website at £20 for a return.
We also have a Ride Share facebook group for Lost Cove 2018. If you need a lift, have a look at the posts, and reply directly to the one you wish to get involved in. Happy sharing!

Whether or not you choose to surf at Lost Cove is entirely up to you – we won’t tell anyone, promise. Have a look below for extra activities you can get involved in, and don’t forget the free yoga and games we put on at the beach, and the and the option to just chill to your heart’s content. Maybe join in on workshops, maybe get a bevvy, maybe have some food, frolic in the sand, have a nap and recharge for the night ahead…. Lost Cove is your oyster.

The prizes for the Women’s and Men’s categories are:
1st: Free holiday at The Surf Week 2018!
2nd: £100 vouchers for Sponsurf
3rd: Mango and LC merch
The university with the highest average score also has an extra chance to be declared winners of LC 2018, and earn a SPONSURF Foamy Only Uni Trophy!
*This year (weather permitting) we ask that all entrants plan at least one fancy dress aspect to their competition entry, because… why not.
The competition is run by Sponsurf and Starsurf, and sponsored by Pete Bounds (local surfing legend) and The Surf Week! They will be deciding who the prizes go to, and which uni can take the overall Trophy!
The competition is designed to level the playing field: giving novice surfers a chance to show their skills to compete alongside the pros. As the name states, it’s foamy’s only. We’ll be expecting switcheroos, coffins, headstands and for the competitor’s imagination to show us something new!
YES and YES. We are really lucky to have some incredible food offerings from local Pembrokeshire farmers, at really, really cheap prices! They will serve organic, vegan, vegetarian and meaty dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late into the night.
Lost Cove is committed to reducing the plastic pollution affecting our seas, and we, therefore, will never stock single-use plastic cups, nor will we be providing plastic straws anymore! That means instead, we bring reusable cups with us every year to stock on our bars, and should you really, really need a straw, we have biodegradable options! Or you are more than welcome to bring your own drink receptacle and metal/re-usable straws…. In fact we would love it if you did!
Every Saturday after the competition takes place, we do a coordinated beach clean, which we ask that everyone takes part in!
We have created a Ride Share facebook group for Lost Cove 2018, to reduce the number of cars that on the roads! If you’re driving and have some spare seats, please make a post in the group stating which city you are going from, and the number of seats. Once your car is full, please reply to your own original post and say FULL. If you need a lift, have a look at the posts, and reply directly to the one you wish to get involved in. Happy sharing!
Lastly, we provide bus transportation from Swansea which can be bought on the website and is £20 for a return ticket.
– This is strictly an 18+ event.
