Campsites from $95; Yurts from $263
If you like the idea of camping on the coast but don’t want to collect the gear to do it, stay at this glamping resort, where a series of yurts and tent sites are arranged high on a bluff with Pacific views. You’ll rough it just enough -- there’s a sushi bar and a restaurant serving alcohol, along with a heated pool and hot tub you can indulge in before crashing out in earshot of the ocean.
Inside tip: Wanna do it like Big Bird? Book the “Human Nest,” where a wood ladder allows access to a hand-built, well, nest, woven from branches. A futon mat is inside; you bring a couple of sleeping bags (the nest fits two.) It costs $150 per night and books 6 or more months in advance.
