 I really enjoyed my stay at Cai Du

Ample facilities and amazing sunsets

Lovely views

Fire pits a bonus

Will definitely revisit hopefully again this year 👍👍👍👍

 Excellent site, excellent location and good amenities.

Our 2nd visit and we will go back however the owners are really not the best with people to say the least. Canít understand why they bother owning a site if everything is too much trouble.

 Fantastic campsite and the owners are lovely. I was a solo female traveller and they gave me local knowledge.

They also asked me to check in on them when I'd finished my hike up Cadir Idris which I thought was lovely.

I only wish I could pronounce some of the Welsh place names!

Hot showers and very clean throughout. Plus the minke Wales every morning and most surreal sunset I've ever witnessed 😍

 Great site - unbeatable location right on the coast, with gorgeous sunsets.

The site itself is well maintained. Shower block clean and central - have to pay extra for showers but given we only paid £17 a night in late May, we didn't mind that.

The owners are friendly but need to be prompted for information - they seem to assume everyone has been before so knows where to go etc. Perhaps because it's so nice that everyone will obviously return again soon! (We certainly will. )

The railway line is immediately behind the camping field but the trains infrequent enough that it wasn't a problem for us. The sound of the waves was louder.

The beach is stony and somewhat hard to access but fine for a dog walk if you're ok with a little clambering.

 Views to die for clean and tidy site pleasantly surprised how quiet the trains were although right next to site.

Beach is not very usable.

But will go back. And that must be a good recommendation.

Reviewer: Marcel 1 review from this member

 Booking confirmation was efficient and quick.

Gaynor is friendly and direct as is her husband. They can come across a little abrupt however are lovely. As I was towing a caravan, Gaynor tipped me off about passing entrance from the North and turning around so I would have an easier entrance from the South. Definitely need to do this.

We camped to the left of site, certainly tricky getting the caravan up the initial steep slightly gravelly incline. Def need a 4x4. Thankfully help was at hand!

Due to C19, Social distancing was in place so campsite was not over crowded. Firepits set up at each pitch. Wood delivered in the evening at a cost of £5. 00 a bag. Well worth the effort lighting the fires.

Bathroom and Kitchen facilities were cleaned several times a day.

Handy freezers so freezer packs could be refrozen. Washing drying facilities not sure of cost as I didn't use.

Showers were a £1. 00, quite generous time allowance.

Hair dryer 20p. Never used.

A great location with super sea view, accessible walks at hand.

Reviewer: Vangoghs ear 4 reviews from this member

 4th happy visit. Dog friendly be respectful donít let your pet roam! Beautiful site & spotlessly clean. Sea views are amazing.

Very friendly owners, farmer comes round with wood every afternoon/early evening. Helped me identify birds Iíd been watching through my binoculars. Sell tasty lamb burgers. We spotted seals, porpoise and dolphins. Cormorants, peregrines, and buzzards.

Little train to Barmouth goes past the top field regularly and is lovely to see and hear the driver tooting for the kids who wave to him!

The sunsets cannot be beaten they are simply beautiful and amazing. Light a campfire in the evening glass of whiskey in hand and relax.

Coming back here as soon as we can for some healing peace and quiet.

If youíve got kids be aware thereís no entertainment its not that kind of place but thereís a lovely pebble beach. Co-op supermarket in Tywyn about 15 mins drive away with a chip shop & takeaway & ice cream shops.

 Stayed here from july-31 to aug-2, lovely spot, lovely view, very quiet all over the site, totally ruined when a large group of polish "campers" turned up with a generator grrr'ing away to power their high powered speakers blasting out music, loud voices and laughter etc until well into the night. I had to help a lady & her young daughter move their tent away from this crowd in order to get a little peace & quiet !

The site itself is fine etc but. This group totally spoiled "my" and a lot of other campers experience.

Overall, very disappointed

Reviewer: Peter in Blackpool 13 reviews from this member

 Stayed here for three nights during some glorious weather in May in my tent. £10 per night. Showers are operated by £1 coin and are not and powerful, and seem to go on and on, plenty of time for a good scrub.

Site is set right on the coast at Cardigan Bay, amazing sunsets and dolphins in the bay in the evenings.

The drive up to the campsite is along the coastal road and has the best views over the sea tongue Llynn peninsula. Not too far a drive from Fairbourne where you can get a little boat across the estuary to Barmouth, go the opposite at and you get to Twynn, both little seaside towns with a variety of shops etc.

I would well recommend this campsite.
