Looking for epic views and the perfect spot to camp? San Martin Top provides!

San Martin Top is a magical spot overlooking the coast in Big Sur. Accessible via a rutted, windy dirt road, it’s remote enough to guarantee some privacy though you’ll see fellow adventurous souls on surrounding ridges. Take care on the drive up, then set up camp overlooking the ocean or rolling layers of marine fog and spend the night under a million stars. Please note that campfires aren’t currently allowed in this area so twinkle lights and stoves are highly recommended!
