    A lovely spot to watch the sun set over penguin island, enjoy the cooling see breeze and watch the kite surfers. Nice stretch of beach. If only the nearby cafe was open longer hours.

    Great fun and a beautiful view. You can have a good time and not have to spend a cent.

    What a place! Dolphins, sea lions, walk to the penguin island, kayaking, paddle boarding, exploring the islands - can easily spend the whole day there
