Pre check-in – questionnaire and extra information when you arrive
We insist that all guests and staff are screened prior to entry to the camp to eliminate the risk of anyone arriving from known hotspots. Anyone who wishes to stay with us is required to complete a questionnaire before they arrive indicating that they have not been to any Covid-19 hotspots and are not showing any flu like or other Covid symptoms. This ensures anyone with even the slightest possibility of infection is not allowed to enter the property, keeping all other guests safe. This is our first line of defence against the virus – the goal is to keep it off the island entirely if possible. When you do arrive our team will share special guidelines for your stay with us.
Social distancing – reduced capacity to limit guest numbers
Even though our camp has enough space to accommodate 56 guests, we are capping capacity at 20 over our 7 glamping tents occupied. This means there is very little chance of large groups of people being in the same vicinity at any one time. As we all know, social distancing is crucial in preventing the spread of the virus, and our reduced capacity will help ensure this happens. There are also a number of notices around the camp reminding guests to keep a safe 1.5 metres apart. Our large kitchens are communal but this is sadly not the time to stop and chat with anyone outside of your immediate group.
We should all be expert hand washers by now and fully stocked supplies of hand sanitiser are available at reception, along with soap in all our bathrooms and kitchens. There are signs dotted around camp reminding guests to please keep their hands clean to help stop the spread. In addition to regular hand washing, guests are also asked to sanitise their ends upon entry to the kitchen, every time.

Cleaning protocols – communal, high-touch areas and bedding
Beach Camp staff have been fully trained for safe stays under Covid-19. How we clean, the products we use and how often cleaning is performed throughout the camp has been adjusted to stop the spread of the virus through communal and high touch areas. Our kitchens are cleaned and sanitised three times a day – before 7am, after breakfast and before dinner at around 4pm. Despite being committed to sustainable, earth friendly cleaning products in normal times, these are not normal times and we have switched to harsher, more traditional products like bleach to ensure no nasties are left behind. Strict cleaning practices also extend to pillows, blankets and mattress protectors which are all replaced upon check out. Bedding is on rotation to prevent any chance of contamination.
The 4 metre rule
We’ve all heard of the 4 metre rule and luckily for us there is plenty of room as Beachcamp to spread out. Guests are asked to remain at a 4 metre distance from people outside of their immediate group at all times. Our friendly staff are eagle eyed and will politely remind any guest that doesn’t stick to this rule, sorry to be such sticklers guys and girls, we just want you to stay safe x
