Was barely anyone there late April but still $27 for 1 on power. 50c for shower but did not work so no shower at all, was not impressed, gave young receptionist something to grin about though! Beautiful beach over the dunes. Would be different vibe in summer.

What a campsite. Perfectly clean and directly behind the dunes is the beautiful beach. Stayed here 3 nights.

Excellent! We stayed in the non-powered sites about 30 seconds walk to the beach! Toilets, showers (+50c) and kitchen all spotlessly clean. €30 a night for 2 ppl, non-powered van.

Great place to stay. Short walk on paths across conservation dunes to get to beach! Multiple amenities blocks. Clean 50c 5min showers; huge fully equipped kitchens with glass front fridges. Bit boggy on grass but plenty of other options for motorhomes.

Highly recommend this site. Just over the sand dunes had a powered site, just next to a sand dune beach entry. Facilities at this site were exceptionally clean and well designed. We also used the washers and dryers in the laundry. Very good value. The beach was beautiful and we had a great walk and long safe swim.
