  • Favourite beach! Love the ice cream, park play area... beach can get full on the one side when the weather is really good. Water is always worth a dip! Security is excellent. Leave our things on the shore, go for a dip, come back to find our things exactly where we left them! Law enforcement, lifeguard, sharkspotters, shark net all on site!
  • Nice family beach one side, dog walking on the other, just watch out for the 🐕 poo as some people think they dont have to pick up after their dogs. At high tide, very little beach so be sure to check the tides.
