  • Most impressive beach is wide, long, beautiful sandy beach. And sand smooth and even texture is good, very good. Swimming day wind is strong no swimming, exploring the sandy beaches just returned. Not at all, it was a little lonely.

  • A nice, large, popular beach with semi-friendly waves and plenty of sand. Not many facilities though, so take along all the food and drinks you will need for the day. Pretty easy to get a park, although some areas require you to purchase a ticket. No shade about, so pile on the suncream. Can get crowded during good weather.
  • Great beach. Not too crowded. Awesome surf. Highly recommend. The sea pools a beauty too.
  • Best holiday I’ve had for three nights the water was beautiful the food delicious and people over there very friendly and hopeful me and my husband we enjoyed specially Six Degree restaurant over harbour side best food and definitely we back again
  • Beautiful beach well maintained with bars and restaurant on the beach . They have a small shallow area where sea water comes in to make kids play in water and be safe than taking them in the sea when waves are strong . Good scenic walk .
  • love the sand and the night view!
