  • Place is awesome. White sand beach makes you feel you're somewhere hot. Great place for the kids to run around and play in the water too.
  • Having gone at the end of July, the whole place was over run with families, children and large groups, so that there was really no peace to enjoy the beautiful setting and Sandy beach.

  • Beautiful views and white sandy beaches! Not to mention the fabulous island community and interesting places to visit such as the wineries, distilleries, potters and walking trails.
  • Huge beach in protected bay. Water gets to a swim able temp! Highly recommended
