Sea Acres

There's so much to do on a caravan holiday at Sea Acres Holiday Park. This is a tranquil and quiet park where customers can soak in the views from the park’s cliff top location.

There's an adventure playground and play areas, amusement arcade and even a PADI dive centre on-park where customers can try their hand at scuba diving! 

For evening entertainment, food and drink, there's 4 venues across the park.
