The beach is great and really beautiful, with lots of birds singing all the time. We stayed for two nights, we were the only ones camping there and it was great. The second two other couples joined, one of them a bit noisy, but it was really wonderful experience anyway. There's a water source, which should be drinkable (at least we were told so by the friendly neighbour and we drank from it without boiling) and honesty box for money.
