Lovely spot near the beach and 3 min from the Pancake Rocks. No bathrooms, no water, lots of sandflies. If its too windy its hard to cook, but not impossible. Doc ranger checking daily. Sandflies level: 7.

Great place to stay for self-contained campers. Beach was great for a walk. The rooster was a bit annoying in the morning.

No toilet but being self contained its not an issue. Beautiful beach. We made a we fire and had marshmallows and met some cool people. Friendly wekas boosting around in the morning. Kids loved it.

Perfect for relaxing just in the middle of the nature, on the super beautiful and wild beach. No facilities, so just full contained vehicles are allowed.

Basic car park but away from the main road and very peaceful apart from the sound of the breakers on the beach. Note: this site is actively managed, with a community ranger visiting the site to make sure everyone was SCC. Oh, and sandflies. Lots and lots of sandflies.
