A nice place to come to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We travelled after the long weekend so crowds were gone and the place and beach were a lot quieter but they were building up for the Easter Break.

Lovely place to camp with mates. Beautiful area, not too busy! Loved it! It wasn't too windy either being so close to the beach we were surprised. Toilets are gross but you get that with long drops haha
