FAQ’s, BOOKING CONDITIONS and PARK RULES
Your booking is a contract that Alex Beach Cabins and Tourist Park will honour.
The management reserves the right to relocate or change the site number when necessary after booking. Booked cabins and sites will be held for 24 hours from arrival date unless otherwise arranged. The management reserves the right to cancel bookings not paid in full on arrival.
The beach is only a short 180 metre walk from the Park. However, if you wish to swim in the ocean we recommend that you swim in front of the Alex Beach Surf Club in between the red and yellow flags for safety. The Surf Club is a short walk (approx 400 metres) along a scenic lakeside path, past a playground and the Skate Park.
