This is not a free campsite, its a jetty so cars are allowed overnight but not for sleeping. We stayed here with the van for almost a week and was no problem. Other campervans came and went as well. Beautiful peaceful location with public toilets and an outdoor shower.

Fantastic spot with easy access via the ferry. Loads of wildlife come to visit the campsite. Choice of both the beach on one side and the lagoon on the other side. Well kept amenities to utilise during your stay.
