We parked beside the beach (down the side road) as gravelled area is on a slope so uneven and regularly used by racehorse truck. Beautiful spot. Quiet end of the beach. Horses train daily. Lots of dogs. Easy walk to town via the track. If I went again, I think I'd park at the sports ground just to play it safe as council rules state 'graveled areas'



The place is beautiful. Hard to level and not much space for larger vans. If you have a 5m van you should have a good time there. We drove on.
