Stayed here 4 nights and our FAVOURITE so far. We were lucky to get the last site (middle). Beaches and sand dunes to walk and explore, dolphins visited each day. We had perfect weather too. View from each window of the caravan. Sites were large enough for 2 to set up but ours was quite slopey. Little camp fire at night was the end of a perfect day. Only negative was MICE, they come out at dusk and are a little too friendly, you need to pack everything up at night as they get into everything. Keep your van door shut at all times! Would recommend this camp ground 100%.



What an awesome spot! Don't let the small number of sites put you off. On our first night we arrived right on sunset & site 1 was still free. Second night, the people in site 2 had moved on & it was empty until we left the next day. The sunsets were absolutely beautiful & we saw dolphins each morning & night. The beach in front was calm, our kids enjoyed swimming & a bit of fishing. Quiet, secluded & absolutely stunning. This has been a highlight of our trip!



We have a 19" van with a long drawbar and turning around at the end was possible just! Its very tight and took lots of small adjustments. It's worth checking to see if there's space before heading in with bigger setups. Otherwise the road in was a little rough but fine with our off road van
