Believe it or not, there are still places on the earth that have yet to be discovered by mankind – unfamiliar territories that are unable to be reached by any kind of ground transportation, and vast stretches of land and shoreline that have not been visited by plane or boat. Over time, many these undisturbed places will be exposed, surveyed, explored, and inhabited, but some areas will become protected and turned into national parks and conservation lands, producing adventure destinations for curious travellers and unique spots for hospitality entrepreneurs to build extraordinary outdoor retreats. These places will become the world’s accessible wilderness.
Accessible wilderness is an area of land that can be reached by car, boat, helicopter or plane, but is surrounded for miles by nothing but nature. It is a phrase that was introduced to us by a remarkable glamping getaway called Eco Beach.
Eco Beach is an award winning eco resort nestled in a virtually untouched region on the shores of western Australia. They offer a range of unique, low-impact lodgings, including villas and houses, but glampers will be drawn to their patented eco tents – airy, canvas-covered rooms equipped with king-sized beds, en suite washrooms and private verandas overlooking the Indian Ocean. During the day, visitors can take advantage of the surrounding wilderness with an endless variety of activities, such as whale watching, fishing, cave kayaking, bush walking, paddle boarding, kite surfing and bird watching. And evenings can be spent strolling in the sand, or enjoying a romantic, fireside dinner on the beach.
Eco Beach’s luxurious outdoor accommodations and pristine, natural surroundings can be reached by helicopter, boat, or an hour’s drive from the town of Broome. Just accessible enough to make it a glamper’s paradise. Visit Glamping Hub to find other fabulous wilderness retreats around the world.
