Been going for years, facilites well maintained and its always relaxing and fun. Camp grounds well maintained and inexpensive. Cafe should open earlier I'd come there at 6.00am and get an excellent coffee before work if they did.

Very impressed with the surroundings and being so close to nature. Our friends from Britain loved the whole experience. There was easy access to all areas, including a ramp as well as steps leading to the cafe. A beach wheelchair was also provided.
