On the shoreline of the wild Atlantic Ocean, lies The Beach Camp™, Backpackers Nature Camp. Bury your toes in the sand, while sipping on your favorite drink. With pre-pitched comfortable bedded Twin Tents and A-Frames, all the necessary camping gear, camping doesn’t get much better than this. The-Beach-Camp™, West Coast Backpackers offers unique alternative accommodation – a place to relax; a place away from the ratrace. We have communal ablutions (gas showers & Eco-friendly dry compost loos), firepit and a well equipped kitchen – typical of backpackers.

We have no electricity by choice.  Come join us and rough it in comfort at The Beach Camp™, South Africa – a Tourism Grading Council 3-star Backbackers /  Hostel.
