Beach has always been a top attraction because of its generous offer of fresh air, cool waves and soft sand. This is a reason that camping on beach is loved by tourists because they can enjoy swimming, strolling and surfing as much as they like.
Spending a day on the beach and then strolling back to camp, watching the sun set over the sea in the evening, and throwing open the tent flaps the next morning to an oceanic view will make your trip a magical one indeed. Though there are many other camping sites like rivers and lakes, woodlands and valleys but camping on beach is always a most wonderful experience.
