General description: Open to the north and west winds, with no place to hide. After a 3 meter rise, it is a very flat site on two levels. A small tent pad is on the same level as the fierpit. A large tenting area is on the other level, and is completely open to the stars. It could be either the view from the firepit at sunset, or the sandy beach that makes this a such a nice summer site.

Overall accessibility: Landing and disembarking pose no problems. There's a fairly gentle path up to the site.
