Absolutely beautiful spot right next to park, playground and beach. Toilets locked at 7.30pm latest but open again at 7.30am. Seperate bins for recycling which was great too.

In very high demand took us three separate days to get a spot here. However really was worth it, such a nice area with local shops and cafes nearby as well as the amazing beach. Toilets were very nice however shut at 8 or so. Has a cold shower too.

We stayed for one night, it was a beautiful place with enough space to have your table and everything outside. Very closed to a very nice beach and toilets stay open all night ! And you can have a cold shower for free.

We stayed here for 1 night. It was a great place to stay. 24 hour accessible toilets that were very clean just across the field. Flat area to park the campervan and very quiet. Short walk to the beach. The only thing that would have made it better was a view of the beach.
