The other reviews seem to be old as there couldn’t be found any caretaker. A lot of signs lead to the caretakers house which was uninhabited. The view from the place was great but the surrounding seemed were not giving a feeling of security. The toilets are public. Wouldn’t use this lonely place if you are a bit afraid.

Cheap price, worth the cost you pay with clean toilets. Beach was not exciting, it was hard to assess and was polluted with car ties.

Lovely campground next to the sea and toilets are well maintained. There is an upper and lower level where you can park. The caretaker is very friendly and we paid $5 too.

Not free and actually costs $5 a car, although still a bargain! Toilets are really clean and well maintained and the caretaker is super friendly.

Not free! It costs 5$, to be paid at the orange house. Information about fee well hidden at the toilets wall. Toilets can't be closed. Campground is near to the sea.
