Beach front location - stunning. Very basic long drop toilet is an assault on the senses. Well what do you expect for free??

In peak season this place is crazy and it is so cramped and tents pitched right next to SH2 (dangerous!). The strip of land between the main road and the beach is so skinny, you will always feel the trucks rumbling past. Great beach though, and maybe worthwhile outside the Christmas/January time period if you can nab a site away from the road ..... but probably better to head a couple of kms north to Pouawa (similar but more land between road and beach)
