    Such a nice place to stay and chill just in front of the Ocean. Pretty cozy dorms and friendly staff. Option to have a good dinner with the owners and feed some stingrays the next morning which is kind of a unique activity.

    Excellent campground with basic, but we'll maintained facilities. Kitchen, showers, toilets, clothes washing, etc. Basic but well maintained cabins, and plenty of caravan and tent space. Easy access from the main road. Very helpful on_site manager.

    This was the second time we have ever camped in a tent and had a great time. This really is a lovely ground, the views are fabulous, the amenities very basic but they're all you need. I'm not sure I'd like to use the showers...More

    Yuck. This place is rundown with dirty facilities. I thought it would be good based on the reviews but it could not have been more gross. The manager is rude and made me very uncomfortable. It didn't feel safe.

    These guests missed a cabin booking and then expected free accomadation during the busiest time of the year, I offered them a reduced rate for a new booking and they just got angry and threatened to ruin our reputation.
