Popular spot, not much room for big rigs, apparently there's another camp down the road. Officially 3 spots for campervans between the arrows. Enormous surf beach, you're protected from the wind in the camping area. Reasonable toilets, well lit, open overnight. We were woken at 2am though, we think some kids threw rocks & sticks onto our roof.



The place is downsized - spot only for 4 vans with 6,5 m length max under new rules. Nice beach for a walk and the sea was quite warm. Toilets a bit yuk atm because the people littered them. Council guy came early morning to check the plate numbers.



Spot for a load of vehicles but the ground is quite inclined on one side unfortunately so a little annoying. Still ok for a night tho and toilets and nice pub close to the spot for a quick beer before bed
