  • Not much shade or shady options. Usual sand beach with pebbles mixed in. Logs to lie or sit against all over, and a nice pier too for crabbing and fishing. Close to parking and shops.  more »
  • In the Park and children's playground near the beach so much walk about 500 meters from the bus because the Lion Bridge in 2014 went cycling in the sea, and the scenery was beautiful and families last year went by using buses can park while chatting, local children were playing toilet shower.

  • Beautiful park. Extremely dog-friendly. The pitch and putt golf course is absolutely beautiful.
  • Beautiful off leash dog area with a great view of Lions Gate Bridge. Unfortunately, lots of miserly locals who will yell at you if you walk on the (poorly signed) dog prohibited sidewalk leading east towards the dog area. Probably cat people...
  • Wonderful view! Parking can be difficult. Good concession.
  • Best dog off-leash area! Other dog owners are responsible too! My dog had a great time. If you do come, be a responsible dog owner too and be proactive if your dog is not sociable to other dogs and keep them on leash if they are aggressive.
  • Great place to walk for the family - with a large off leash area, and a nice little farmers market on the weekend.
