  • Nice cafe, good working shower, plenty of beach to fish and swim near. Stay upwind, near the jetty or all that corner area in case when there are kite surfers, to stay safe as sometimes they can't control their kite and you don't want to end up in hospital. The Sun said no swimming to the island as people have drowned. Better take the lil boat.
  • Great place! Great facilities! Always enjoy coming here with all my friends and family! Great place for people who boat, jet ski, kayak or just want to come and swim!
  • Such a great place with kids, there was a time when I spent so many days here..... Riding here from St Claire with my 8yr old nephew.... Who I used to have often at my house, my son, 5yrs old peddling his little heart out on his Mongoose.... No gears, Jake and I had gears at least... It was a hard ride...... But the kids were great.... We used to stop and have a swim along the way, it was the ride back that was always the worst.... πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜±πŸ˜±
  • Clean and clear waters. Very lovely sight. We should look after the environment.
  • A island to see penguin. High recommended as the penguin is beautiful and before the jetty that you go is nice work good sea view and good restaurant to have a good cup of coffee before you go or after you come back.
