  • Us groks love this place cuz we can shred till we drop then roll into fresh n fried fish n chips. Pretty crowded when it's on, there are the oldies that just drop in on us absolute shredders until we can't rip no more. My advice is Don't wax the bottom of you board and also don't be a kook.
  • Beautiful and beach to spend with the family. Lots of people surfing and also great for a weekend visit with your fellow friends.
  • Great spot to surf or watch fantastic surfers. There is calmer part of the beach for kids to swim. But it's not patrolled.
  • absolutely gorgeous place to go for a swim, there's nice cafes nearby too. it's fun adventuring the rock pools and there's always a spot to place your towel with a lot of room between you and the next group.
  • Amazing little rock pool that not many people know about. Gotta check it out if you are local and have never seen it.
