The campsite is open Gravel car park next to the beach. Lots of room



Campsite is closed



15 spots for sc vehicles. Beach is closeby which is nice but road was pretty noisy throughout the night (trucks) & there is no toilet around. The one in the racecourt is not accessible, a fence is build all around the area. Two ladies from the council came by at 9pm (when it was already dark) and checked all cars. We were lucky as they didn't want to inspect our car from inside. Maybe because our van is a bit bigger. Our neighbors were less lucky. They were woken up by the ladies and told that they need an always accessible toilet with space for the elbows to count as sc. After a long discussion they stayed without being fined but were told to never do so again because of the new bylaw.. If u want to stay here make sure u set up ur toilet as soon as u reach..they seem to check every night
