Lovely place by the sea, not very close to the road. Clean toilets with paper.

Fantastic wee spot. Pity about all the people who couldn’t follow the instructions and camp in the allowed area, which does only fit in about 8-10 small vans. Good to see they were moved along though and those who tried to sneak in after dark were fined $200 the next morning. Follow the rules people and don’t ruin the ‘freedom camping’ experience for others as this spot is beautiful. Please respect and keep it this way for others to enjoy.

Lovely spot by the beach (just over a small hill, can't be seen from the camping spot). It's for 1 night only and got clean toilets (sand on the floor but that's expected), picnic tables, great views. Free for all types of camping (tents, not SC and SC).

Fills up quickly and not a lot of space, it's not "straight parking" either which makes it a bit awkward with the spacing. Camping grounds were filled up around 18.30, so get here in time.
