Tyson from Australia
Moana is a long stretch of beach that you are able to drive your car on (there is only one side of the beach that you can do this the other is NO cars).
Most of the time at Moana the waves are extremely small but sometimes it can get bigger.
North Moana beach is a short 90km drive from Adelaide.
the water is just a 1min walk from the caravan park.
