fantastic beach with great views, very peacefully the cliffs in the back ground look amazing when sun issetting
We live locally and this is just one of the best beaches in Australia. We go to the clothed section which is fabulous swimming and crystal clear water great for kids and snorkelling.
Living locally we often frequent the part of Maslins Beach that requires clothing and we love it. The Backdrop of the cliffs in the clothing optional part of Maslins is pretty spectacular
