We booked for 5 nights, but as soon as we arrived, we knew that we wanted to stay a lot longer. It not only met our expectations..but exceeded them. We had the perfect seaview pitch with beautiful views across the beaches, and with the grassy dunes around us it was also really private. We got the feeling of "wild camping" + though facilities on site were small they were constantly clean. We had lots of long walks + games on the beach. On the days we were lucky enough to catch some fish we barbequed them for our dinner! What a life! And then there's the campsite owner Kris...you couldnt find a more helpful + hospitable guy. Nothing was too much trouble. It is without a doubt the best campsite we have ever stayed in, + we will definitely go back..
