The Beach Camp Accommodation Accommodation

Pre-pitched accommodation consists of 4 cozy wooden A-Frames with beds or bed-frames (=like a fouton) that can accommodate 2 people per unit. In addition we have 6 comfortable Twin Tents = 2 single beds / unit.  You would rather bring your own 2-man tent along?  Sure, we also have a designated section for this – area roughly 3x3m unshaded.Find out more.
