A beautiful flat area for campers, although quite exposed along a very pretty beach. Very basic facilities are available at McGowan camping area and fees apply.

Visitors arriving with their own boat will find easy access to the water but the available bounties must be worth it because this spot is very popular for fishing. Fishing, oysters and crabbing are within easy reach by dingy or off the rocks. Fuel is also available.

Various tours, such as fishing & crabbing are also available for visitors without their own boat. It is best to pre-book these if possible, or enquire on arrival for the next available tour.
