If I had to go camping in style, it would have cost me a small fortune to gather all the camping gear for a comfortable sleep and a quick get away - never mind the cost of the trailer to cart all the stuff with me. I love this place with its comfy couches and hot showers and ecofriendly toilets...

If you love nature and it's sounds, campfire, barbecue and star gazing this is it. Warm showers and lazy mornings looking at the waves breaking past your toes while still in bed.. conversation around the fire or in the pirate bar. Those who like it love it..

If you are after marble tiles, in-room tv, and mints on pillows...this place is not for you. However, if falling asleep with the ocean at your feet, or sitting around a bonfire under an impossible blanket of stars is your thing... this is your happy place! There is something magic about rustic West Coast beach charm meeting unspoiled nature that...

I booked 2 "tented" rooms for a mid week getaway and was quite surprised at the amount i had to pay.. (Equal to a 4star BnB). Rusty mugs, no bedfing, smelly ablutions, and being required to wash all our own dishes or be charged extra. The only redeeming factor was the amazing view and proximity to the ocean.. neither of...

This place is absolutely incredible. A great balance between totally roughing it and modern conveniences. The location is incredible, the staff is awesome, and it is a great place to relax and get away from it all. Be sure to heed their "What to Bring" list, if you do, you will not be disappointed.

The Beach Camp is nothing short of amazing. Though I was only able to stay for one night I had such a wonderful time! The staff, Peet in particular, are incredibly hospitable and they went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed and got everywhere I needed to go. I was taken aback at their...

Lovely serene view from the tents on the beach front. Yet generally poorly equipped- ablution facilities need dire improvement with entire campsite requiring a thorough springclean. Be prepared to rough it or chuck it.

Beautiful location, amazing set-up, great hosts and an unique camping experience! If you head up the west coast coast you have to visit The Beach Camp. It's an absolute must! You will end up going back there for sure!

The Beach Camp is a breath of fresh Paternoster air, a treasure of a stay tucked away in the gem of the West Coast. Peet and staff were amazing and super friendly, fellow guests were radiant and chatty from the ultra chilled out vibes and calmness that The Beach Camp offers. No electricity means lounging in their beach bar with...

It's tough to choose any other words to describe The Beach Camp. We were completely blown away with beauty, simplicity, and tranquility of The Beach Camp. With an extremely friendly staff, all the amenities one could require, and a location unparalleled to any other, our time at The Beach Camp was a definite highlight to the trip. Located so close...

“Don't forget your headlamp, there are no lights and a torch is just no adequate. Choose one of the A frame tents for the best sea views.”
