Should rename this place petty town. We have built our houses here and we do not want you impinging on our privacy. Go spend your hard earned dollars elsewhere.

Actually meant to go to a different spot but Google maps took us here.... Beautiful spot but I would say it's more suitable for small vans and not big rigs. Gorgeous beach and beautiful sunrise. Quite a few snotty locals who were not happy with us being there but overall harmless... Don't let them scare you off! Enjoy it whilst it lasts...might just be because we are "younger looking" found that on our travels, even trying to be as smiley and friendly as possible we aren't as accepted as the older gen... Haha but we highly recommend!!

The rules are absolutly crazy, staying 3m from eachother?! Then there will be only 3 cars parked there. The spot is nice, but i think the council is going alittle overboard with the rules. Parking on a grass area, toilets open all night, outside shower is poor, but it's there - no soap allowed. Overall a nice spot with a beautiful view, quiet at night time, just the ocean roaring in the distance.
