I have visited and stayed at the Beach camp many times - too many to remember - since 2002. Over the years, I have seen it grown into a most precious, magic spot where you can relax and rejuvinate. The owners and their staff are very friendly and welcoming, and take tremendous care to maintain this camp that is so exposed to the relentless West Coast elements of sun, sea, salt and south easter. Granted, it is not the Hilton - and that is its magic. It has a rustic, timeless feel but I stilll call it camping in luxury - no tents to make (and I slept in them while raining as recent as September 2011, never came across a leak), sleeping on beds with linen provided, no cooking gear to to haul along.... Visitors to the west coast will be missing out if you don't experience this place. It is my favourite getaway out of the city at least three times a year.
