Beautiful located by the ocean. It's also a parking lot that is being used by a lot of people, so keep that in mind . It's one toilet that stays open all night and that also have one shower!

Stayed here on a Saturday night, was pretty full with vehicles belonging to bar and restaurant patrons. After about 10pm every half hour or so a carload of 18-24yo's would turn up to use the toilet but they were well behaved. Beautiful sunset in the morning, nice safe area. The main automated toilet still has a faulty sliding door, but there's a bigger toilet block just next to it.



Nice quiet carpark you can sleep in by the beach. Busy in the day but clears out later on. Some cafes nearby and lots of people surfing. The toilet door was broken when I was there and kept opening whilst I was trying to use it. Peace and love x
