Beach camping near Monterey guide

Overview

At the southern end of Monterey Bay, idyllic Monterey offers easy access to plenty of beaches along the Central Coast. Once you've set up camp near the sand, play in the ocean at Monterey Bay State Beach, browse history and shops at Cannery Row, or see marine wildlife at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Play a round of golf, or drive the scenic 17-Mile Drive through Pebble Beach. Monterey beach camping options put you close to the water, including tent and RV sites on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean at New Brighton, Seacliff, Manresa, and Sunset state beaches. Or head south to the rugged Big Sur coast for epic views, waterfalls, Redwood forests, and beach camping at Andrew Molera and Limekiln state parks, and near the Ventana Wilderness of the Los Padres National Forest. For more amenities, like RV sites with full hookups, playgrounds, and wifi, look to a private beach campground around Monterey.
