Hi,

We are camping at Yellow Sands Caravan Park for the month of February 2020, and would like some advise on where to stand to avoid heavy winds. I am not very tolerable when it comes to wind (Panic Freak) but do understand that this cannot be avoided totally. there are lots of people in the same boat.

We do need to be as near as possible to an ablution block.

Those of you who has often been to this resort, please would you be so kind to tell me what stands are the best to avoid most strong winds?

Many thanks

Hi George,

I will be coming from PE, and going passed Areena caravan Park to Yellow Sands. I cant remember the roads name that I travelled on from East London when I branched off towards Areena to see what the park looks, like but I  remember the road was very bad with pot holes. 

Not too sure what you mean about two roads diverged in a wood? laughing

Geert/Brian

We were there in 1999/2000, and at that stage is was a working farm (cattle, as far as I can remember). So at that stage, you had to be on the resort to have access to the beach.

There were NOTHING else in  the area. I think there might have been access from the river side (on the right hand of the resort ) at high tide from place upstream via fishing boats from Areena?, but can remember.

But there was NO "traffic" strolling along the beach - having a look at what could be "salvaged"from the caravan park!!!

One of the areas  we had on the list oaf where we would have enjoyed retirement!!!!, but unfortunately camping for us ended in 2012.

The stands with direct access to the beach may be a wee bit "windy" at some stages,, but otherwise a GREAT resort. (As we experienced it!). On some of the other forums you may find some fine comments!!!

Groete.

Frans

Brian, That video clip is beautiful, thanks a million.  I hope people will see the good advantage of a drone at the same time. Thanks again.

Great video.. Gives one a much better understanding of Yellow Sands! Some of those stands are really nice and close to the ocean, wonder how many of them actually can see the ocean from there tents!!!
