Big Sur is a long stretch of undeveloped, rugged, gorgeous coastline in Central California. Many say it’s the most beautiful part of the state’s famously beautiful coastline as the mountains come right up the coastline and sharp cliffs plunge down to hidden beaches that are often difficult to reach but well worth the difficult trek down.
It’s a popular spot for travelers driving down the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) from the Bay Area down to Southern California. Many will stop and hike to a campsite where they will stay overnight, hike the mountains, walk the beaches and finish up around the campfire at night.
The best time for camping is from late spring through the summer and into the early fall. The winter months are also beautiful but often cool and foggy.
