    Absolutely gorgeous beach park. Great for day trips and boating as well as overnight camping. Tent sites are up on the hill so you get sun and a view from your site. A really stunning location makes up for lack of full washrooms, etc. We will be back!

    The smell of the sea, the view of the Sunshine Coast, the quiet. It's worth a half hour or so stop there.
