Staff were friendly and their systems faultless. Good facilities, clean, open layout, and right on the beach. The bunk house was all we needed for an overnight stay, and the bunks had pretty thin mattresses, the only minor minus point.More

The cabin was delightful, very clean and had everything we could possibly need. The beach and countryside are lovely. The beach is long with white sand and mild surf. The camping ground was very well managed and not crowded.
