We haved camped at Cervantes ( Sir-van-tees) for a night as this is the closest town to The Pinnicles. Cervantes is on the coast about 20 km from The Pinnicles. The beach here is also delightful, very crystal clear and turqoise in colour. Also sea lions live on the islands dotted just off the coast as well as lobsters being plentiful.

Limestone stucture

Limestone stucture

These limestone structures were created from ancient shells. They are made over many years by natural processes that have combined to remove surrounding material to result in the limestone pinnacles jutting out from there srrounds. The first documented sighting of these Pinnicles was in 1650 by Dutch sailors who mistook the Pinnicles for ruins of an ancient civilization. They are really beautiful and well worth the $11 entry fee per car.
