  • Snapper is the perfect place to go if you want to surf, world renowned waves and the host of the quicksilver pro once every year. Even if you're not going to surf its a great place to go and watch the surfing or relax on the beach. If you're lucky you might even see someone famous walking around.
  • A beautiful secluded cove of volcanic rocks that create a natural sea bath with blue water and white sand. It’s not normally too crowded which is a nice change as the other beaches nearby are notorious for their amazing surf. If you’re lucky enough you might also spot a pod of whales further out in the ocean. Go for an adventure into the rocks and look up for the frog ;)
  • Amazing beach. World class waves. Awesome spot. Always busy though!
  • Stunning area and beach. Didn't swim in the small pool there but it looked amazing. Nice bar just around the corner - wonderful to sit in the balcony and get a drink post the swim. Lovely spot!
  • Just been here for a quick half hour during WSL 2018. The beach is awesome and the rocks along the beach makes it more dramatic
