Beautiful setting overlooking the sea. Excellent facilities. However BE WARNED all tent owners. Due to location this is an extremely windy site and twice we have had to leave early before our tent left without us over the cliff top !! NO warning of this from the site and no refund or apology provided for trips cut short or damaged tents X 2 !
