  • 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.
  • It seems like every time we try to go to penguin island, the ferry isn't running for one reason or another. But I know it's quite nice from memory.
  • What a place! Dolphins, sea lions, walk to the penguin island, kayaking, paddle boarding, exploring the islands - can easily spend the whole day there
  • Nothing quite like this area, great crabbing during the summer and even better kayaking
