Small carpark at the end of the road. Nowhere does it actually say you may park overnight... but I guess it also doesn't say you can't. There are currently two porta-loos installed just past the gate but otherwise no other facilities. Beautiful beach just a 5 minute walk away. If you go down there (and you should!) just be careful not to disturb the sea lions - view from a distance.

Just stayed here last night! No facilities, not level, no signal and ruddy windy! But we LOVED it. Amazing view over Sandfly Bay and the Pacific and lovely walk into and down to Sandfly Bay Wildlife Refuge. We went down onto the beach, spotted two yellow-eyed penguins, from a distance and saw loads of massive sea lions, funny buggers. Remember guys, this is a Wildlife Refuge so read the signs and be respectful. Oh, we got signal at the end of the beach, oh and we did fill a bag for of rubbish in the carpark. Keep it clean, keep it free. Find us on Instagram if you like @twoguysvanlife and @saltyskin
