Steep gravel road in but so worth it on a nice clear day. We drove past the campsite and parked at the top of the cliff on the grass. Was quite windy so found some bushes for shelter from the sea breeze. Stoney beach with a fresh water stream running into it, great for the dogs to swim. No cellphone reception or fresh water.



Road not so bad, just take it slow and assume someone is coming towards you. Small area to park. Great surf. Quiet.
