Windy, but great beach for kite surfing or walking the dog. Sites are not completely private, but acceptable, campground has showers.

If you are going just to eat, you can get free parking for one hour as long as you get the restaurant to stamp your pass. Otherwise, it's $10.00 for the day!
who do you contact for reservations for the cottages? Thanks, Rob Blair
