For bigger parties, there is more accommodation available to rent at the eco tourism farm in the form of lovely historic cottages and also a very good camping and overlander site.

An enjoyable stay. Although rustic, it was peaceful and staff were very helpful. A short way from the beach - a couple of minutes drive - but the lagoon makes up for a lot.
