Great location right on the beach. Toilet open 24hrs, outdoor shower, and large lot. There are 6 spots for non-self contained and the rest of the lot is open for self contained. Popular beach for wind and kite surfing.

Last night followed directions and couldn't find it.
Today instead of turning left like GPS said we turned right. Went to end of road and followed sign to park. Windy wild night. Not good if weather bad. Probably ok in summer. There were hoons doing wheelies in the grass.
