on asphalt parking, a bit tight with many cars and didn't feel at ease to camp here. Close to the beach and restaurant



Lovely! Overlooking the beach. 1 toilet remains open all night. The others close. The car park empties during the evening so easy to find a spot after 18:00. You can also park on the Esplanade. Outside shower for rinsing off after surfing. Free council wifi in the park around the corner.



Parking lot was full but you can actually street park with better view and most importantly more flat surface 😅. Take a morning coffee at the long dog cafe
