How many cars can I bring?
You can have two cars per site/cabin, or one if you bring a boat, jet ski or trailer. Please note for 2-bedroom cabins, this would be a tight squeeze.

Sites

Are there trees on the site?
Yes, we’re in a tropical area so there are a lot of palm trees. They don’t usually cause any problems and provide some good shade.

Is this site on a slope?
All our sites are level.

Yes, you can have fit one car plus a boat, jet ski or trailer.

The taps are located at the rear of each site.

You’ll need a 10-amp lead.

What is in the camp kitchen?
Our camp kitchen is equipped with an oven and stove, hot plates, a BBQ and kettles. All you’ll need to bring is the food.

Can we put a tent on a caravan site?
Our caravan sites are mostly slabs so this is not recommended.

Can we bring a generator?
For the enjoyment of all guests, we don’t allow generators in the park. Plus, there is no need as all our sites are powered.

Cabins

Is there room for me to have my boat/jet ski/trailer?
Yes, there is space for one car and a boat/jet ski/trailer. One-bedroom cabins are better for this as they have more parking room. For 2-bedroom cabins, it is possible but will be a bit tight.
