Awesome spot with great sunsets views. Room for quite a lot of vans, depending on how selfishly people park... Very quiet but can get windy. Flat, no shade, a few sandflies Very clean long drop toilet Thank you for providing such a lovely spot !



If the weather is forecasted to be sunny and not so windy, many people come. I spent there two nights. One was quite empty, the other not completely full, but compared to the first night it felt like that. 4 long drops. I can tell that the 2 further down are clean. Good reception. Nice walk on the beach during low tide. People did go surfing there. Nothing else to do, especially during high tide. No wind protection. Quite leveled grass spots. Location is good for a nice sunset, requires luck with the weather.



Beautiful spot, didn't use the toilets so don't know about that. But the view and the beach are fantastic.
