This is a great little spot. 11 spots total. 6 for self contained and 5 NSC. Toilets, dump station, drinking water, sink for washing dishes. Easy beach access. Quiet. You can hear road noise but quiet at night.



Got almost full at the end of the day, some people with SC still parked at NCS spots. Clean flushing toilets, tap with drinkable water behind toilets. Nice beach nearby.



Spent a night here as did a few others. There are spots for self-contained and spots for non-self-contained vehicles which is good, but no tents are allowed. We are SC but accidentally parked in the non area, but everyone was all over everywhere so I don't think it really mattered. It gets very busy with locals etc during the day but at night very peaceful. Toilets were minging but water and dump station all good! Thanks Find us on Instagram if like @twoguysvanlife and @saltyskin
