General description: A very well protected site that gives the feeling of being in a bowl. Wind from the west is blocked by a hill, and wind from other directions is deflected by a rise that separates the site from the bay to the west or by the trees on the perimeter to the east. Shade is easily found on the site or at the beach.
The thunderbox, while in need of some maintenance, could be considered for basic training for the "cirque du soleil" since using it requires considerable balancing skills.

Overall accessibility: No real issues. The path from the northeast side of campsite is a little rooty.
