Campsites at Coast Camp

The campsites looked a bit grim where encroaching vegetation had just been trimmed back, but will eventually recover.

Trail to Coast Camp

As an alternative to walking on the beach, there is a cliff-top trail to Coast Camp. But it connects only to the youth hostel and education center inland, not the Limantour parking area.
