very nice spot. no facilities but toilets (and BBQ) 2 minutes away. stay for 1 night, only 2 other vehicles. plenty of space, and very quiet.

Was full when we got there around 6-7 pm last weekend. 8 spots we counted but people don't park properly so only 7 vehicles were there. It was a long weekend :p so expected to be full.



Huge area, shame they don't allow for more vans as many parked in front of each other. Toilets are a fair distance but the beach is just behind the camping area. Toilets are well lit at night.
