We had a powered site for our Campervan - it was protected by the Sand Dunes but close enough for a long walk when we arrived. Lovely and quiet. Staff super friendly. The amenities clean and excellent showers only 50 cents for 5 minutes. Would be helpful to have a normal rubbish bin in the kitchen rubbish other than food... More

We booked 3 days before arriving on Valentines Day. The camp ground was relatively quiet. Got a good camp site close to the toilets and shared kitchen. Nice and peaceful. Its on a fantastic part of the beach and did some fishing off the rocks. Caught lots of Kahawai so threw them back but was fun. Amazing stars at night.... More

Have just spent the last 2 nights staying in a self-contained cabin, only metres from the beach. The cabin was spacious and had everything we needed, clean and comfortable. All staff we dealt with were so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend staying here. I'll be back for sure probably with grandkids in tow this time.

The location invited us to stay and we had a good time. We made use of the white sand for a beautiful beach stroll, then did the cliff walk to the south, had a meal and a few cocktails at the restaurant and enjoyed the clean room.
