Nice place. Just off the road. Quieter in the evenings, less road traffic. Lovely sunsets. Plenty of room

Right on the beachfront with plenty of space. Take your rod for some fishing. We had a lovely sunset and chat with other campers. Only for self contained campers as no other facilities.

Lovely relaxing place and one meets awesome people as well
