Great spot left side was full (maybe because it was sheltered and maybe because it had the drop loo so we went to the right side and had it to ourselves was magic



Agree 100%, this is a top spot. Either side of entry is equal. We stayed to the right. Sheltered table area and water tank for 'walkers of the Walk the Yorke trail'. Can do some short walks over the dunes or along part of the trail. Can get quite windy, so tuck in away from the exposed areas. Gravel road in, take it easy.

Wow amazing spot and our favourite on the Yorke. We spend 4 nights here and we were lucky to get a spot on the right side and tucked up in the back corner. Make sure you have a rod, plenty of squid of the rocks and the water was crystal clear perfect for a swim or snorkel. Not far back into town for supplies, there's also a great dump point, rubbish bins and portable water at the Showgrounds.
