Great beach camp , but no shade so pretty hot during the day. Lots of long grass at the moment so not much space.

When to park up here like last year. Grass is 2 ft long. There is one water filled hole on the way in that is about a meter deep. I drove through without the van to check it first. You can go around the hole using the side track.
