The only negative for us about this place was the price : $60 for a tent site for 2 people when we didn't require power was very expensive compared to other beach front camps we have used. However the position is excellent, straight onto the beach, straight onto the walkway up the Mount, and 2 minutes from excellent cafes and shopping. Also adjacent to the hot pools with a discounted rate for campers. The reception was friendly and efficient. The camp is well laid out and well organised, everything as it should be and clean and tidy. Showers and toilets spotless. Plenty of hot water to the free showers. Kitchen also spotless. I would recommend this camp site but with the caution that it is relatively expensive.
